ESA Decision

Postby Shelleigh » Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:28 pm

Hi all. I had my assessment on 20th June and got the decision through today.
I have been put in the work related group.
I had an appointment at the pain clinic on Tuesday and was told it could take me years, if ever, that I would even be able to consider going back to work.
I have no idea where to go from here.

You can appeal their decision Shelleigh, this linky explains what you need to do to get things in motion viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12541
Contact someone like CAB, DIAL, Welfare Rights or other similar organisations in your area, they should be able to help and advise you.

The linky says what yo do if you fail the WCA, but it's the same process to appeal the decision about which group you have been put in Shelleigh.
