  1. Thankyou for your help guys. I send off the form and I'm waiting to hear back from them.
  2. I've recently been sent a PIP Award Review form. It says that after I return it, I could get a telephone call or have to go to a face to face consultation. I'm finding the process extremely stressful and it's weighing on my mental health. Luckily a friend is helping me fill in the form, but I don't know if I can deal with another face-to-face consultation at this time. My memories of the last face to face consultation I had to go to are extremely distressing. I really don't want to lose my PIP, but I'm on ESA too, and with my new situation (different housing etc), could maybe just
  3. Hey- just looked at this thread again, and I noticed that in my above post I was like, 'all seems well ' , kind of ignoring what you said about your appeal being refused. This was a bit lacking of me- sorry, didn't mean to be so selfish, just replied in a rush. Sorry to hear about your appeal being refused, good luck with the next step. all the best
  4. Yep- also rang the DWP again and got it confirmed, all seems well Thankyou very much.
  5. Hi guys I rang the DWP about a change in my circumstances. The guy on the phone told me I had to send some evidence in but the address he gave me sounded really weird- I wonder if anyone knows if this is right?: FREEPOST DWP ESA 36 Thankyou
  6. Thankyou so much for your help guys...my friend helped me in the interview, and I'm going to get advice from Mind if need be, depending on what happens next. They said I have to wait for a letter from a decision maker. Thanks again, it's been really tough and has complicated my treatment / recovery a lot, but your help made a big difference. That stuff from ECAP was great, cos we were really concerned that they might try to not let my friend help me.
  7. Thankyou for your help, the information is reassuring and makes a big difference. Still very nervous that they will be trying to catch me out- I was panicking at the end of the last interview and signed the statement without really checking what I had said. I guess if it goes badly and they take away my benefits I can try to get some help with an appeal or something?
  8. I'm on ESA and PIP due to severe mental health problems. I live in England and am single. A friend typed this up for me as I'm unable to manage this type of thing usually, but I'm really worried and desparate for some advice. A week ago I had to attend a Compliance Interview at the Job Centre. When I got there it turned out they thought I'd had too much savings in the past, and they wanted to see bank statements. Turns out it was their mistake and the bank statements show I'm in the clear. However, during the interview the Officer became extremely unpleasant and aggressive, que
  9. Greetings all. A bit concerned about something, and google etc yields no answers... I'm currently on contributory-based ESA- but have had a change in my living situation, and I've been told to fill in an ESA3 form. This is to update them on my change of circumstance, and also because I might qualify for an income-related top up to my ESA. In one section, the form asks 'Do you pay a private landlord...for the place where you live?' and if you tick yes, 'Please tell us their name and address.' I'm concerned about filling in this information, since I don't want to inform my l
