  1. Did the switch last year, no problems and now nothing to do with the evil DWP or ATOS. Now just waiting for sometime next year when my battle for DLA renewal will start
  2. Several years ago a disabled friend of mine rang me. He was still giggling and laughing. Evidently a 'Compliance Officer' or somesuch called at his house to check some things. My friend said it was Pouring with rain when the gentleman called. My friend didnt let him in but spoke to him on the doorstep. When asked for proof of certain details he asked the chap to wait, closed the door with the poor chap still in the rain and went and made a cup of tea. Around 5 minutes later he said he went back to the front door where the now soaked CO was standing, apologised and said he couldnt find the information requested as his wife had put it away but if he came back the next day he would get his wife to find it. The CO left, my friend said, soaked to the bone, and my old matey just couldnt stop giggling and laughing.
  3. So ATOS is backing out? Someonoe else taking over? HMM reminds me of the final lines of a Who song. "Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss"
  4. Yes I know that I know all of the above. My question was about the legality of attempting to move me when there is a live appeal about putting me into the support group
  5. Two weeks back I received the standard letter that my CB based ESA will be finishing in June. Now I still have my Appeal pending after is was postponed in December as they wanted more info. Whilst I realise that the letter is pretty standard, if my Appeal is still pending when June arrives can they legally take me off of CB based ESA? Another curiosity, Pension credit told me I couldnt go onto IB ESA when my CB finished and I would need to go onto full Pension credit, there was no option !
  6. So, I got the letter yesterday advising me that my CB ESA will finish in June. Nothing more, nothing about changing over to IB. As I'm already on Pension Credit would it simply be the easier option to dump ESA all together and just go onto full PC? Im 65 in 2015.

  9. Surely if the OP was put into the Support Group in Augst he shouldnt have to fill in any more ESA50's for two years or so??
  10. Oh dear Pedantics at Christmas. I bet youre a ball of fun
  11. I'm damned if I can find it now but I did see a post on some forum or other stated that the Pensions Service had confirmed that there was no problem now switching from ESA to PC. I know that earlier this year there were some problems but as far as I know now that problem has been sorted.
  12. Even if you do stop ESA Voluntarily you can go onto full pension credit. My ESA Contribution based will end next July. I rang Pension Credit and they confirmed I can drop the ESA on renewal and go onto full Pension Credit
  13. Well the first thing you need to do is start getting medical evidence to back up your claims.
  14. I cant see it working to be honest. There are too many legal problems which could rise up to hit them. I just think its IDS posturing, what with 'Call me Dave's" popularity waning
