Worth a read.

The coalition has launched plans to reassess everyone currently on incapacity benefit, with the intention of forcing those "fit for work" out into a non-existent jobs market.

Rigg's health problems had been previously diagnosed by a psychiatrist and were certified by his GP as a "long-term underlying mental health condition." He is also deaf in one ear, has osteoarthritis and a bad back and knees.

That article sums it up nicely Kicking-Us-Off-ESA.

 

In fact the problem isn't just in Aberdeen and Burnley with WCA assessments; I had a PCA for IB in March 2010 and was awarded 2 points and kicked off IB.

 

There has got to be a secret memo or directive telling all Atossors to award 0 or 2 points to almost everyone who goes along to be assessed. I would love someone to "whistle-blow" and expose this memo or whatever it may be.

Benefits rules are complex, and although I do try to inform and support people, I may get it wrong because the rules apply to individual claimants and their particular circumstances.
