  1. hi there, my head is about to explode trying to work this out what happens if: you have been deemed to have limited capability for work LCW and you are getting ESA contributions based and your year then runs out As the beginning of that year you have had phone interview and you have been told you dont need to go on work related activity because of your difficulties and also because you are waiting an appeal to argue being placed from wrag to support group. And then you dont win your appeal and your entitlement has run out , and you dont meet the criteria for income related ESA? there you are a year down the line , you are without any ESA, have had no work related actvity to help you back to work (not that you could have done it anyway because of your illnessess/disabiliites- which is why you were appealing not being put in the support group ) is that how it goes .. what happens next , do they expect you to apply for JSA, even though your heath conditions mean you are not capable of searching for a job , let alone getting and holding done down ?
  2. Last October Atos failed me but following a review of my case during appeal I was placed in the Support Group. 10 weeks later I received another form to complete for yet another examination, I completed this and sent it with a large file of documents to further support my illnesses. My MP, who had been actively involved in my appeal, also contacted the department to find out what was going on. That was March this year. Today, some 7 months later, I receive a letter stating I am being removed from the Support Group and placed in the WRAG, stating... "We have looked at your claim again following a recent change", states my benefit will be reduced and then adds "This is because of: a decision on your capability for work. You have moved from the Support Group to the Work Related Activity Group". I have not notified them of any change, there has been no change (other than a further deterioration in my health), I am almost 61 years of age and have already been told I will be moved to Pension Credits at age 62, and one of my illnesses is agoraphobia which means I very rarely can leave my home. Indeed, my young son recently died and his funeral was yesterday and I could not even attend! I know I am able to appeal this changed decision. Does anyone have any advice on this?
