"Finally I have heard the news that people with presettlement should still apply for benefits even though they will likely be denied help as the DWP has appealed the court case. But if DWP loses then we will be entitled to backpay.

I don't know why the government is refusing to help us and leaving us to struggle even though my son is a British citizen. It makes no sense. I hope all those who are excluded like me are hanging on. We will get through this."
