Just wondered if someone could give me some advice, I like many thousands of others have been placed in a work based group despite telling the the woman i had a hip replacement op looming amongst a whole load of other bone problems and well bottom line was she just wasn't listening she had her script to work too and that was that and i wanting to appeal this even though am not sure if its too late and how do i do this from what Ive been reading my first port of call is my gp and get him to fill in the form Ive printed off the site about regulations 29 and 35 of the ESA act any help will be most appreciated as im a little out of my depth here xxxkia

Thank you. So you think you should be in the Support Group?

 

Could you tell us please how many workshops they're expecting you to attend?

 

I think your thread would be better in the DWP forum rather than the Atos one, so I'll move it. I'll leave a short term redirect here.

Thank u honey bee yes i think i should be in the support group and she didn't say how many she was very evasive in how many i would have to attend cos as i explained to her ive got a looming hip replacement amongst other things. She said i would have to go to first one and then after that would maybe not need to go to anymore due to my operation but she seemed very unsure of this and its how to get to these workshops as there not local to me it will involve taxis xxxkia

You have a month to appeal their decision. In some cases, you can appeal up to 13 months.

I would yes. But what I would also do, is write to DWP (their address is on any letter you've received about your ESA) and explain that you're appealing and more information will follow. I would then make a GP appointment and gather as much information as possible.

what descriptor ? sounds like a science fiction movie:wink: i should be in the support because Ive been placed in a work based group and to make me work would make my condition much worse and under their own rules its either 29 or 35 of ESA rules u shouldn't make someones condition worse by forcing them back into work and as seem to be fracturing constantly atm and have two hip replacements and knee replacements think working would be bad idea hope this answers your question xxxkia

Reg 29 won't help you here, as you've already been determined to have limited capability for work. Reg 35 might apply, as it relates to limited capability for work related activity (LCWRA). You need to be found to have LCWRA to be placed in the Support Group, and you can show this by satisfying one of the descriptors mentioned by Estellyn and linked to in Nystagmite's post above, or by showing that Reg 35 applies to you.

 

I'd start with the descriptors before trying to make a case on Reg 35.

You can submit more information to the tribunal at a later date - the important thing is to get your appeal in before the deadline.

You have one calendar month from the date of the decision you wish to appeal. It's possible to appeal late, but you would need to include a statement explaining your reasons for not appealing within the usual timeframe. The absolute deadline is 13 months after the decision.
