My father has dementia and had his benefit stopped completely from the 4th March because he did not attend his medical assessment, and his excuse for missing the interview wasn't good enough and hasn't recieved a penny since.


He had to re-apply for ESA as a new claim, even though he's been on long term. 10 years+.


When we phone the jobcentre and dwp, they just say his claim is still processing and when the doctor gets to read his file or some thing then they will get back to us. But how long will this take? He's had no money for 5 months now.


Please help someone.

Just about all you can do is pester - phone every day if you can until something is done. You also may be able to get your MP interested. It may not make things go any faster, but you should also make a formal complaint, in writing, to the benefit delivery centre concerned.

Hi stardust80


Get a letter from your fathers doctor/consultant, regarding his dementia. Write a Formal Letter of Complaint, mark it as such, explain that the delay is unacceptable, that further information has been provided by your fathers doctor/consultant (attach).


Send it to:-


In the Subject field write the name of the Delivery Centre - XXXXXXXX benefit centre dealing with your claim. Don't forget to add a Ref. No.


Send it to :- [email protected] uk
