  1. Sent my appeal off with some brief details of why i was appealing , Had a Letter from DWP confirming that they received my appeal, and about how much ESA i will get until it's heard, But so far over 1mth since requesting the full written statement of the Atos wca Form IB /ESA85, But so far i have not been sent it, The person that i recently spoke with from DWP ,Confirmed that they could see that i had previously requested it, but could not understand why i had not yet received it, What can be done to force them to supply this info,(assuming it actually exists) ?
  2. Currently running at 87% of decisions same as original DM decision because.... This folks is why you should ignore the DWP and appeal! I'll give DWP DMs the benefit of the doubt here as although my last MR for DLA was refused.... the Mandatory Reconsideration DM actually didn't write against my new lower award but how I could win at appeal! Bizarre but true ! Reddit thread Rightsnet thread https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/forums/viewthread/11271/
  3. Hi all, I'm after some advice... I claim wftc as a single person - my husband passed away 3 years ago. When he passed away my husband had his own business of which we were both directors and our acountant filed our annual tax returns etc. After my husband died (he had a pub) i had to change the pub in to my nme in order to keep it going - pubco insisted. I set up a new limited company of which i was the sole director and informed hmrc of the change. Sadly, i found it very difficult to manage after my husband died and hit some pretty rough financial times and decided to
  4. Hi all, I have recently had yet another WCA and have been placed into the WRA group, obviously this is not the worst decision that I could have got but I was previously (from a WCA only a year earlier) in the care group. I don't understand why I have been moved down a tier after only recently having been moved up, I have been getting ESA WRA for years and have previously been in the care group many, many years ago and have had periods of bouncing back and forth between JSA and ESA under ATOS, the point being, my condition back then should have had me in the care group, but ATOS...
  5. i had a mandatory reconsideration for backdating of my JSA, the decision maker decided in my favour so i will be paid 29 days im owed. I was told by about 7-8 advisors that if they changed the decision in my favour it could be actioned as a same day payment because i've been without for so long. i spoke to the benefit centre today and they have said even though it has been ruled in my favour they have to contact the job centre regarding "labour market laws" and that it will be around another week before i am paid anything. who is correct? its been about 6 weeks now and we've
  6. 8 weeks ago I missed an appointment at the job centre through sickness. I went in the next day to fill out the sickness form. I thought that was it sorted. I asked when my next signing time would be and they told me that they would be in touch. The day before my signing time I still hadn't heard from them, so I made a phone call to find out what was happening. They told me not to worry about it and they would arrange one for two weeks time. Just before the two weeks passed, I received a letter in the post, telling me that my claim had been closed the day I missed a signing due to sic
  7. Hello All, Can someone please tell me where I can find a sample letter or how to draft a letter asking the DWP for a PIP reconsideration. I've never written one before and I've been helping an autism to fill in her PIP she just got a reply back to say that her daughter has got the enhanced care but lower rate mob. I have filled in the criteria properly the letter says she did not get enhanced because her daughter can walk more than 250 yards. Her daughter has autism disorder and Cannot follow the route of a familiar journey without another person, when she's been out alone i
  8. Hello. I am currently getting income based JSA for about 1 year now. I stay with my mum, But all of a sudden my mum is saying i need to pay £27 towards to rent as the council will only pay £109. So why now do i need to pay. I have a brother who gets ESA, and my mum gets income support. What are causing the housing benefit deduction, My brother only started claiming ESA this year in march, And all of a sudden the housing benefit is cut. So could someone help me because i am getting the impression the cut is because of me but i have been getting jsa for around a year and
  9. Last month I sent a letter of mandatory reconsideration to challenge a benefit decision. The decision did not involve a sanction. I have received no acknowledgement by now. I have spoken to the benefit centre and they phoned me back saying that they have not received my letter (I have proof of signature) and as long as they are concerned there is nothing I can do. Is this right? Shouldn't I be entitled to have my case reconsidered? What should I do? Is this the latest trend at the DWP? What is the procedure? Thanks.
  10. I hope someone can help us out with this problem. I am asking for help on here as a last resort. My husband has been in hospital for the past three weeks and I am trying to do things he has always done for us. For years (since1993) he has been getting his DLA for top mobility and middle care. He was told back in January 2014 that he had to apply for PIP. He filled in the form and sent it off. In September he had a medical for it and a letter came through at the start of November saying that he isn't allowed PIP. With him being so ill and in and out of hospital since last November he never got
  11. I won my PIP reconsideration have finally been awarded PIP at the daily living rate component. Cannot stress what a huge difference this will make for me, not only financially, but also that at last my illness has been recognized as being detrimental to my well being. It has been a long hard struggle, one I did not think I would win.
  12. I applied for PIP in Nov 2013 had my medical 11 months later which I failed. I asked for a mandatory reconsideration and submitted new/supporting evidence, sent recorded. Just been told this evidence has been lost, so there is nothing new showing on their system, I am going to get a failed because of this. Is there anything I can do about this, I have asked my CPN if she can send it again, but this is beyond belief. It took me ages to get that letter, it's not easy for me asking for help, saying nothing for what it is doing to my MH. I cannot believe they can lose such valua
  13. Hi Can anyone help. My husband has mental health problems, so this is very distressing for him. We received a letter saying that he did not attend a work capability assessment appointment for 9.12.13 " he never received any letter, so he could not go to an appointment" Any way the letter said fill this form in to say why he did not attend, which we did stating the fact that we did not receive such letter, it said fill form in by 18.12.13, I sent the form back the same day. We have been worried all over christmas. Then today we receive this letter stating that he will no longer receive h
  14. I'm hoping perhaps antone or Mr P can answer this. As per my current sanction saga, I'm now considering going for a mandatory reconsideration because the one month response time is up on the 10th. I no longer have any confidence that the assurances of a resolve to the problem I've been getting from the WP liaison officer at JCP will amount to anything. However I don't want to burn all the bridges so, would asking for the reconsideration prejudice anything that the liaison officer might have achieved?
  15. After a monumental cock up by the DWP,the decision to refuse me ESA has now been allegedly confirmed a second time,but they've sent me none of the paperwork that was sent to me the first time - which makes me suspicious. What documents can I demand from the DWP to show they actually did a 2nd reconsideration?
  16. Please can anyone advise on this. I had my DLA reduced on renewal from mrc/lrm to lrc/lrm. I asked for a reconsideration as they had dismissed my night needs. Today I have just heard (they do time them to arrive at a weekend don't they, all mine have) that they have disallowed any award at all. I saw somewhere that the reconsideration is backdated to the date of the original decision, can anyone help with if this is true and will they be wanting me to pay back the original renewal amount? Thing is I am now likely to lose my home, I can't pay my rent or bills on what little incapacity
  17. Hi, I had my DLA renewal decision dated 21st August and have lrm and my care was reduced from middle to lrc. I have more night needs due to anxiety and have thought I would like them to reconsider but I am scared they will take the rest of my award. If I have time now, I have left many messages for my support worker but he doesn't return my calls so I am running out of time. What else can I send them and how do I do that? I mean do I write or call and tell them I want to send a supporting letter from someone who knows what I go through? Would that be enough? What is likel
  18. If your JSA is sanctioned you first submit a reconsideration form, then if that is rejected an appeal form. So i submitted my reconsideration form 2 weeks ago, i forgot to ask at my signing today if there was ny news though, but I've heard anywhere between 2 weeks and 6 months. But I've also heard that the reconsideration should be quite quick as it's the appeal that takes forever. I was also told that i would receive something in writing as to the decision, but i also appealed for hardship and was told over the phone when i was inquiring about something else that the hardship reque
