What a lovely monday morning suprise :roll:

Everyone on ESA WRAG will have a letter explaining that as from 3 Dec there is a change in the law which says ....

At present you are in the WRAG, this means you MUST attend and take part in work-focused interviews if you are asked to do so. to qualify for your benefit.
You may also have to carry out work related activities that your advisor (non medicaly trained) thinks will help you be able to return to work in the future.
If you do not attend and take part without a good reason (your dead?) :roll: your payement can be reduced by 14.07 rising to 28.15 A WEEK! after 4 weeks until you comply!. We call this a sanction (pfft) :evil:

So thats more stress and pressure for us! merry christmas :roll: :xmasdance1:

I've got that letter too
I will continue to send in sick notes, despite DWP sending me a text message (!) the other day that I don't have to send anymore sick notes
the text message reads:
"We have received your fit note. You have been awarded the Work Related Activity Component. You do not need to send in fit notes until further notice."
anyone else got a text?
reply to this text is not possible

all the best :cow-wave: Lu

Hi folks

I have heard from a reliable source that although these sanctions will be put in place if it happens appeal straight away as the new rules do have some loopholes in that the law being used is not for ESA but JSA and so isnt legal. :yikes:

Dont ask me how I know I just heard it from a very close horse. Id seek legal advice just to be sure though.

Here is some more information: ... ng%29-nbsp

Lots there.

Looks like they have moved the goalposts with regard to voluntary/mandatory entry in to the Slave Programme, and the status of the various prognosis that you receive when entering the WRAG:

How long before we have to give up our homes and go to the Work Camps I wonder!!!

Perhaps we will be forced to give said homes to those that are 'normal' and 'working'!!!

It makes me wonder whether the Führer, sorry, Mr. Cameroon is attempting to create some kind of utopian society...
