  1. Hi BF privately rents 3 bed house on his own. Been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. Means will be receiving treatment as an inpatient for chemo. First round in 7weeks 3 days second round who knows. Advice received for Macmillan applied for HB,CB reduction and Pension Credit. Awarded HB DHP for 13 weeks and full CB reduction. Await PC decision been 6 weeks. As he was claiming WTC Macmillan people wasn't aware of run on period whilst ill. Anyway my question is he exempt from Under Occupancy Rule as according to Shelter website you attain the State Pension Credit age as from 01/04/13 61 yrs. and 5mths. He was born 15/02/50.So qualifies? But do the rules mean state pension age which is different and do you have to already be in receipt of HB as at 01/4/13 to benefit. Thank you.
  2. Hi Quelle surprise!! £186.00 in my account today thank goodness. Many thanks for your help Margaret. Yes I was on CB IB before being transferred to CB ESA. I can't work out if I am a day owing will look into that. Just reconfirmation should have received payment 24/01/14 so next scheduled payment should be 07/02/14. Many thanks to everybody.
  3. Hi Yet another phone call today they have said £186.00 will be paid tomorrow. So looks as though IB ESA awarded. Should it be at the same amount as CB ESA.Watch this space. Can anybody shed any light on how they have arrived at this figure. CB ESA ended 11/01/14 was receiving £105.05 fortnightly. Received last payment 10/01/14. So was due next payment 24/01/14. If they pay tomorrow can I assume payments will recommence in line with when I should have been paid last ie next payment 7/02/14. Sorry for the questions I just don't want to have to call them again unless I have to.It ends up in a long phone call because of my stammer due to my anxiety.
  4. Hi Surprise surprise no money in my account yesterday or today. Looks like another phone call tomorrow. Will keep you updated.
  5. Hi Apologies I received a call from DWP surprise surprise she had my ESA3 and would be actioning it today or tomorrow. I await with baited breath. I will let you know.
  6. Thank you all for your wonderful responses advice and help. We will see what happens on Monday. Fingers crossed ever the optimistic with regards to the DWP.lol.
  7. I have phoned them and they have requested that someone calls me back between 9am-1pm Monday. I said I've no money and was told there was nothing I could apply for. Will just have to see on Monday. Thank you for all your replies.
  8. Applied by eas3 for ib esa which should be entitled to as no partner or savings. Not heard anything. Who do I ring to chase up? No money direct debits due beginning next month no overdraft facility due to debt probs. Is there anybody I can apply to for a crisis loan? Thank you.
  9. Work have advised that the final pay out will be based on the p/t hrs i was working at the time of illness. Is this right or should it be based on my original f/t employment contract.
  10. So in essence they are obliged to pay me 8weeks notice pay and all accrued holiday pay?
  11. Yes employed for 8yrs. But have been on long term sick for some time. Does this make a difference to the notice period?
  12. Thanks for that. In the letter i have received it states i will be paid your notice period of one month. Is this wrong?
  13. Employment terminated on grounds of work capability due to long term ill health. Employed 8yrs f/t. When signed off I was only working p/t 20hrs 5 days p/w.(This was because I had had a previous period of sickness where i had been allowed a phased return to work thus building up to 20hrs p/w) My questions are : Am i right in thinking that i am entitled to all holiday pay accrued during my absence plus one months pay in lieu of notice. Should the final pay out take into account any increment that there may have been during my absence. Should the final pay out be based on my f/t or p/t pay (as i was only working 20hrs when signed off) Am i entitled to ask for a break down as to how they have calculated the final pay out. Thanks
  14. Hi Well done. When have they said is your next review? Make sure you get a copy of your medical. Best wishes
  15. Hi Helen Yes i meant ask for a copy of the most recent medical report. Write to the DWP at the address shown on the letter that says you have passed. Did your letter state the amount of points you had scored? Mine didn't. Best wishes.
  16. Just an afterthought i would write to the DWP and ask for a copy of your medical report for future reference. Best wishes Cat
  17. Hi Helen I know what you mean the medical takes so much out of you. We have a breather of six months and lets hope we are maybe in a position to work before the next medical. Well done for sending your cv out. I had my HR dept come to see me the other day and they are referring me to Occupational Health again. So we will see what happens. Best wishes. Catkin
  18. What have they given you as your next review date? Best wishes Catkin
  19. hi If you are appealing the ESA medical decision i was of the understanding that you are entitled to claim ESA at the assessment rate while you await your appeal. I don't know whether this is subject to what your hubby receives though. Hopefully somebody with a little more knowledge can advise. Best wishes
  20. Another thing worth mentioning your friend can appoint an appointee to deal with their benefits ie you can deal with the form filling and telephone calls then.
  21. Hi You need to simply write to the DWP where he received the letter for the decision requesting a copy of the IB85. Quote in the letter the NI number. Just say Please could you send me a copy of the IB85 medical report. I sent my letter recorded delivery and received a reply within 5days. Best wishes
  22. Received a copy of my IB85 report today. Have just read through it and it was very accurate. Adding up the points i scored 25. In prognosis the dr has said claimant's condition should improve withinn 18months. Yet i have only been given a review until Feb 2011. I assume its because of the migration onto ESA beginning next year. I would advise anyone even if you pass the medical get a copy of the report for future reference.
  23. Hi hun I am sorry that this has happened. If i was you wait until this form comes and then fill it in as you have explained to us what happened in as much detail as you can. I would labour the point that at no time did the doctor intimate that by you leaving it was an incomplete medical. I also think a letter of complaint into ATOS stating what has happened. They are obliged to investigate. If they decide that you have to have another medical would a home visit be better for you? Is it possible to get a letter of support from your GP? Best Wishes x
