  1. If a couple have a joint JSA claim and the one who doesn't sign on (i.e not the lead claimant) goes abroad for a few weeks does this trigger migration to UC, either on leaving or returning?
  2. Hi everybody, apologies if you've seen my question on some other forum, but I did not get any replies and I'm getting a bit anxious about this issue. Quick recap: - EU national, in UK for 15 years, but with an absence of more than 6 months (see below) - Never claimed any benefits until late 2013, till I lost my job, then left the UK for 8 months and came back in 2014. - Claimed JSA in 2015 (six months after coming back) but it was initially refused on the ground the 8 months absence would not entitle to any benefits. - Appealed and won, but was told I could only claim
  3. Hi There, This is a long story so hope you are sitting down and got a cuppa. I was medically retired from the NHS in 1997 and placed on IB, I also had a pension from NHS/CIS for about £70 now £73.(2016) The DWP people were aware of the pensions from the beginning as the Hospital filled initial forms in.

I then received a letter saying my C ESA was due to run out in August as id had my year i asked them what i should do and they said
  4. Hello All I am need of wisdom to help me through the Incapacity Benefit to ESA migration. Back in January I filled in the huge ESA 50. Sent this off. Then I heard nothing until May when I was called into ATOS to have a medical. They kept me waiting some 40 minutes before I went into for the examination. The examination lasted some 50 minutes I waited a couple of weeks and then requested the ATOS report which I received. I heard nothing in writing and I kept telephoning and asking what was happening. Now some considerable time later I received a letter which stated that I had been m
  5. Hi I hope someone can help me, I have been in receipt of Disability Living Allowance Higher rate care & mobility since 1999. I have also been in receipt of Severe Disablement Allowance (SDA) continuously since 1998. My benefit didnt stop when they scrapped SDA and replaced it with Incapacity Benefit. I was just told I could remain on SDA indefinatly. This was also the case when they scrapped Incapacity benefit for Employment and support allowance. My benefit didn't change. Alas, I have today received a form ESA50 to migrate from SDA to Employment & Support Allowance. I k
  6. Hi I am a newbie who is looking for help/advice. My husband recieved a phone call on 9 oct saying he had been placed in support group then half hour later recieved another call apologising and saying he was in wrag. We have since made several calls asking where letter saying he is in wrag group is as we have only recieved one stating he is in support group and we want to appeal the decision.

  7. My husband who was on the old IB then moved on to ESA, he was put into the WRAG group for ESA. He started a full time job on Friday which is fantastic and he can work from home which is even better due to his medical conditions. My questions are: He will be informing them today of his new current situation. is there anything he would be entitled to as he will changing to monthly pay? If for some reason he finds that he is too ill to continue with work, can he be put back into the same category within a certain timescale or will this become a new claim? Many thanks
  8. Have had the letter saying I will receive the ESA50 form soon. Any info appreciated as worried. My disabilities are mental rather than physical. I've heard mention of recent new criteria for ESA new descriptors etc is that right? can i source them anywhere? will there be adequate questions asked re mental health? any info appreciated

Do ATOS ring you from a witheld number.Or am I stressing for nothing thanks for your help.
  10. Last November I obtained a MAC code from Virgin (ADSL) and tried to migrate to BT. BT initially told me that the MAC code from Virgin was invalid, so I called Virgin and obtained a new one over the phone. With that, BT successfully completed the migration and started providing my phone and broadband services. Virgin have not stopped taking money from me by Direct Debit each month. I called to query this and they deny ever having issued the second, valid MAC code. This is due to their policy against keeping records of phone conversations - I learnt my lesson and now only communicate by ema
