I failed my esa atos medical in July 2011, I scored 0 points. I then took this to an appeal with a tribunal and the appeal was heard on the 6th Feb 2012. The appeal has been disallowed and the tribunal has agreed with the original decision that I am not allowed Esa. I've been reading the notes included in the decision that say if I am unhappy with the decision notice (which has two lines of writing on it) I can apply for a statement of reasons from the tribunal. After that, if I am still unhappy, I can apply for a Upper Tier Tribunal which I am considering doing. My question is where do I go from here?? If I apply for the statement of reasons and then the upper tier tribunal, will I still receive the esa at the lower rate?? I can't claim jobseekers because I'm not fit for work. I'm so worried and its affecting my family. Please help.

Thank you.

To claim ESA, you'd need to send in sick notes. You can only appeal to the upper tier on the basis of law.


By all means ask for a statement of reasons just to see what it says then get it checked to see if you can appeal further.Have a look at the time limits on Appealing to the Upper Tribunal as it makes things easier if you stick to them.


Your priority should be a new ESA claim as the original decision was July so the 6 month limit before you can submit a new one for an existing pre-claimed (not deteriorated or new condition) passed sometime in January.


Since you are outside of the 6 month rule you will be paid as normal on the new claim.




Edit: sorry I was a bit flippant; I quoted Nystys' post because it's correct on both points. Sick note for new/existing claim and the legal factor is why you need specialist help/advice for the Upper Tribunal appeal
