They're still paying on appeal. if you make a claim for jobseekers, you may not get it, due to being unfit for work.

My reading of this situation, is that if your GP states you are unfit to work then JCP will not want you on JSA. You will therefore have to go through the silly ESA system, for as long as you are unfit to work. i.e register for ESA, get assessment rate, attend assessment centre, be declared fit for work, see GP, if not fit for work, make new ESA claim. Only if you are fit for work with no GP sign off, can you make a JSA claim.

We could do with some help from you.
