I am currently on long term incapacity benefit.

 

I suffer from severe depression, sinus tachycardia, under active thyroid, and polysystic ovary syndrome.

 

I am currently waiting an outpatient appointment for adult mental health services as my gp is worried about my mental health at the moment and this medical is the last thing I need right now.

 

I received back in September the WCA questionnaire to fill in as they are wanting me to migrate onto ESA.

 

I filled the form in with the help of the CAB giving them everything they wanted to know about my health etc etc.

 

They failed to contact my GP for a medical report and I am very very angry that I am being called in for the dreaded assessment which is tomorrow!!

 

I am concerned because my partner works full time and after tax etc he only takes home £18k a year; bearing in mind he pays the mortgage, and all the other bills, he could not afford to pay for me as well!

 

I fear that if I loose my income I would not cope and as we are not married I fail to see why he should support me.

 

If I fail the WCA, can anyone please tell me how to make an appeal, as I don't know what to do and am at my wits end!!

 

Thanks xx

Hello there and welcome to CAG. :)

 

Please try to take this one step at a time and not worry yourself sick about it. Plenty of us have been where you are and we'll help you.

 

I'll post you a link to the sticky about how to answer the questions tomorrow and another one about appeals in case you need it later.

 

My best, HB

Claire,

 

I found the sticky really helpful and done my descriptors letter from the template. I have waited 6 months for appeal and its happening tomorrow. You have time to get all your paperwork and evidence together.
