    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19   I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA.   TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply.   (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine).   I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage.   I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again.   Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   They then took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc.   TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it.   The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler.   I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain.   I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Basically; regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid' so they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' so they can't uphold my complaint, then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal) so when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks and tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250. She also tried to rush me into agreeing.   
    • No it was about under by a couple grand.    Cheers
    • yes. Did you earn over £12,500  with that employer during the year?
    • No it was 1250L I guess that's the tax allowance limit code?    Cheers

Yes. There is a sticky on here which tells you how to word it. So, you don't just write "I disagree". You need explain to why - what happens if your husband attempts the task? In order for him to actually do the task, he must be able to repeat it without pain, discomfort, etc. So, if he can mobilise 50 meters once a week with no pain, it's reasonable to say he can't do it - because he can't repeat it.

Appealing or going to a tribunal? Some useful information by :honeybee13: is the 'letter' you're looking for. It's the last sticky on the first page of this forum.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

Here's a link to the sticky, it's on the page that has all the thread titles for the benefits forum, towards the top in the yellow section.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?251737-Appealing-or-going-to-a-Tribunal-Some-useful-information%287-Viewing%29-nbsp

 

To add to what Nystagmite has said, you need to go through the Atos report, is it an ESA85? with a fine tooth comb and highlight all the things they said about your OH that you think are wrong. Then you slot the information into the template letter/submission document.

 

The sticky also tells you about my own tribunal, which I went to with my OH. Bookworm also wrote about her own experience.

 

My best, HB

I was told that they basically check from the moment you enter the building. So, it may look a bit strange (in their eyes) if your husband claims he can't go out without anyone and turns up alone.

I went to Tribunal appealing a 0 points ATOS face to face. I was awarded the 15 points within a few minutes and they placed me in the WRAG.

I hope all goes well with the tribunal.

 

I had my first one in April this year, after getting the lovely zilch points. I went to tribunal armed only with a doctors letter and an honest approach, I also represented myself as didn't get much help from local C.A.B.

 

The tribunal was tough but very fair. They had read all my appeal notes before I went in, so was only asked questions relevant to the descriptors I had felt I fitted into.

 

The tribunal lasted an hour and I was posted the results. I won the appeal and was placed in the support group. I just simply went in and told the truth. I hoped that would be enough, and thankfully, along with a solitary doctors letter, it was.

 

All the very best.

There are indeed success stories. Quite a few of them on CAG.

And as a welcome pressie for Mark Hoban;

Latest stats from the Tribunals Service show a 42% sucess rate (up from 39%-40% throughout last year) for employment and support allowance appellants.
