When savings have fallen with an existing award can the reduction in tariff income be backdated if ESA are not informed immediately?


When a client receives income-related ESA and has savings between £6000.00 and £16000.00 they have tariff income deducted from their entitlement.  When the savings fall, the amount of tariff income is reduced.  If the ESA department are not informed of this immediately can the reduction in tariff income and therefore increase in income-related ESA be backdated?
