Form filling in

Postby Tartdog » Fri Jun 29, 2012 8:23 pm

Hi,
The dreaded brown envelope arrived today, have searched these forums but can't find anything, are there any links to advice on the best way to complete the forms? What's needed to get the best possible results, cheers. Tartdog.

Tartdog what we have found to be the best way to deal with forms is to get some professional help either from CAB/DIAL Welfare rights or social services.

They can look at your situation (cos all of us are different) and circumstances and help you the best. Advice on here is only general I'm afraid. A lot of people are finding it difficult to get in touch with anyone from CAB as they are getting pretty much snowed under, :fingerscrossed: you can find the right advice for you and :fingerscrossed: it all goes OK :-D :-D :-D

Hi. I think the general advise is, " fill it in as how you feel, at your worst. But beware!! they'll try and catch you out or confuse you, so think about the questions and your answers before you write them. Ive got my appeal hearing on Monday and Ive had no luck getting help from CAB, DIAL, DIAC or anyone because, as Denys said, they are snowed under with these cases. So Ive just put my own case together as best as I can and hope its good enough and that I get a sympathetic judge. My daughter has written a statement for me, saying how she's seen me, over the years, coping with more and more health problems, physical and mental. She's also coming with me on Monday. So fingers crossed... Good luck with yours.

As you can't get to see your specialist in time tartdog, might ringing them to ask for a letter explaining things be an idea :-? :-? :-?

:goodluck2: :goodluck2: for tomorrow Bumblebee :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Slightly confused (nothing unusual for me though,lol) am I right in saying that if you score a top score of 15 points in just one of the boxes in the ESA form then you are put straight into the support group? Tartdog.

No afraid not.

You need 15points to pass to get onto ESA

If you score those points on questions related to the support group then in you go.

Just re reading through my award I notice that I have been put into contribution ESA support group does that mean I will only get it for 1 year like I had been told would happen if I was put into the wrag group?
