Hi Blueberry,

You should still get paid at least untill you get the decision.

I phoned DWP last week requesting a copy of the medical assesment which arrived this Wednesday.

There are a few errors on it but obviously I will be pointing these out when I get the decision through.

The chap at DWP advised me that in my area of South Yorksire the decisions take approximately 4 months :yikes:

Don't worry

Hi Blue berry. It can take up to 11 weeks, be prepared for it to be refused and for a long fight I've had both ESA and DLA or whatever they call it theses days refused. Even if I were fit to work who would give me a job ? I'm going to fight it all the way no matter how ill I get and no matter how hard a struggle it is . Get someone to help with you if you get refused don't do it on your own. I tried the ESA on my own and lost now I have the backing of a disability group who are helping me and I feel quite hopeful.

Hi all Well i waited about 6 weeks and got my decision on Thursday that they are putting me in a work related group which basically means i have a year to find a job. So i now have to find the strength to appeal their decision, from where i dont know its put me on a real downer i am also waiting to hear from dla as they refused me so they are reconsidering their decision. wish i could just curl up in a corner somewere :cry:
