  4. Hello I hope you can help - I have someone who is a decent human being but has been put is a difficult situation. Someone else was helping him before but I’ve been called on-board as the other person hasn't got the time. He has been on ESA for a long time, He suffers from severe social anxiety, depression, body image issues and also post-traumatic stress due to many issues; most of which are childhood-related, whereas the traumatic stress (I believe) was relatively recent (5 years ago) due a severe facial injury that required intense facial- reconstr
  5. hi im new on this site, been reading some of the threads re:esa appeals, ive got mine in 2 weeks and im really nervous/anxious about it, i suffer from lower back problem and anxiety/panic attacks. i failed my atos last june (nil points) a lot of information is missing from the atos report, ie it states i was there longer than i actually was , never asked questions re:anxiety or the incontinence i suffer with ,and a lot of it is exaggerated to say the least, i got a solicitor involved to help with tribunal, with the info i gave her she had scored me more than
  6. I was self-employed until early February 2016 and claiming WTC's. I ceased trading and informed both HMRC (Tax) and HMRC (WTC) to look after a very unwell elderly relative and started claiming Careers Allowance - I stopped claiming WTC obviously beforehand . I'm now completing my final HMRC Self Assessment which is a bit arduous as its not for a full tax year. I wasn't simultaneously self employed and claiming Careers Allowance so I'm wondering as my accounts are drawn up until Feb 2016 whether this should be declared as I was claiming a State Benefit - the Carers Allowance happened afte

  9. I have been on long term incapacity but like nearly everyone else on this I have had the forms which were filled out and returned and now have an appointment for an atos assessment, fully understandable given the benefit changes and I have no problem with this but I hear too many horror stories about it As I have use of my hands, and a pulse I expect that dwp will decide that my benefit will cease, and I have a few questions regarding this will I be notified of the date it ceases? how long after the assessment? can I reapply for benefit right away or does the system really leave
  10. im due a review by atos , but im really confused by the new form , ive left it as long as I can but I cant put into words correctly what I need to .

  12. i have just found out this morning i have failed my atos assesment told i have to go on job seekers allowance even though i am confined to a wheelchair because of spinal damage i got no points at all..any advice please
  13. Dear all, I'm behind with my self assessment's (stupid I know) by 7 years !!, as you can imagine I have bills from HMRC of around the £8k mark for not doing them. I accept that I haven't completed them and eventually have come round to some sensible thinking of getting it all straight, the last few years haven't been easy having been made redundant, closing a company and having a new daughter who was in intensive care for 3 months after being born but I appreciate all the personal stuff needs to go aside and HMRC probably wouldn't care anyway. So my situation:- 1/

    Atos assesment

    I went for my ATOS DLA assement yesterday and the Doctor kept me for less than 5 min's. She said " I can see you are in pain so I won't examine you. You can go." What does that mean? I am confused. Will I have to go back?
