Please help me with resigning

Postby Mumihippo » Tue Jan 08, 2013 2:29 pm

Hi there,
I've been off sick now for very a year. I had 6mths half pay then that stopped and I had to apply to a work scheme for income protection. This was in June, I only got the outcome today and found that it and been declined. I also found out that they had a surveillance officer watching me and my children for 3 days last month. This was what made them decide to decline my claim. Stating that I am fit to work full time because they observe me driving and lifting up my daughter!!!!! I never drive far, so would have been a mile at the most. Ad most of you will know that you still have to look after your children, but this is in no way indicative if being able to work. My HR have now said that I can no longer get sick notes from my GP as insurance company has found me fit to work!!!!! My GP said she word keep signing me, so have the other eps islets I have seen. At least dwp have recognised that I was unfit to carry out work.

Has anyone else had any experience of this? I don't know what to do. I am not fit for work in any capacity. I don't want to be dragged down the route of capabilities hearings etc. I've been with company for 10 years.

It was a GP that gave the company his medicl opinion that I was able to work after watching the DVD. It's very unsettling to know hat there's a group of people watching you and your family. It seems that you are not able to leave your bed before being found fit for a full time work.

What do I do? Please help.

Oh mumihippo, I think you need to speak to a disability advisor before doing anything you need to contact them quickly so that you can get things moving before your employers make the decision for you. There are advisor's at your local job centre so give them a ring today :fingerscrossed:

You need some specialised advice with what has happened. Do you have a right of appeal about the decision made by the income protection people??

Normally we would suggest CAB, but I'm not sure if this is something they could help with :-? :shock: :-? Might be worth talking to them or another similar organisation in your area, even if they can't help, they may be able to put you in touch with someone who can.

Sorry it's not a more helpful, question answering suggestion :( :( :(

Was wondering if the solicitor Brian Barr could help you? or at least point you in the right direction for help :?:

So sorry that this has happened to you , its hateful to think that people are spying on you and watching your every move.
I'm with FP & Jo , I think the help you need is way above the CAB officers (no offence to them as they do a wonderful job)
I think you need to get a solicitor to act for you with the insurance company & your work . Have a look on your house insurance as sometimes your house policy has some legal support written into it. If not see if a local solicitor will give you a fix fee appointment to see if you can at least get a handle on the situation.
My own payment protection policy didn't want to pay out when I claimed on it , I've gone to appeal but still no outcome . Would hate to think they were spying on me to see what I did.

Good luck
hugs

Brian has already been asked about this by the poster. This linky viewtopic.php?f=27&t=15514&p=165229#p165229 has his replies on it, one of which is the chance to ring and speak to him about things.

Hi Mumihippo, I've just read your post and can't believe how you have been treated. :yikes: It's scary to think that people can be spying on you when your trying to carry on a sort of 'normal' life. Unless you have fibro you cannot really understand what it like to go through the range of symptoms it can cause. I'm sure taking your child to school is not easy for you but something that has to be done. I really hope that you get all this sorted. Stress is the last thing you need. Try not to let this get on top of you and take all the advice you can. Good luck with this hun. take care Caz :goodluck2:

Thanks guys. I have tried speaking to Brian Barr but unfortunately he's not able to help without running up costly legal bills-something I cannot afford to be doing just now. Thankyou for the advice. I will try the route of citizens advice or through a disability adviser. I will let you know but please post if you have something to add that might help :-D

Have you tried solicitors in your area?? Sometimes they hold "surgeries" where they offer initial advice free of charge for all sorts of matters.

Hi

Would you qualify for legal aid at all? Just a thought though it does depend on your income but it may be worth checking it out!!! I cant believe they have been watching you like that and your children that is really bad. What confuses me is how can they make a judgement on your work capabilities just based on a 3 day surveillance?!!!!! Who told you they had been watching you? I worry about being under surveillance as the only time i go out is on better days or if i have appointments and i have no choice but how can they judge on an odd day. Just lately i have spent a lot of time stuck at home in bed so if they are waiting for me to come out they would get extremly bored as i can count on 1 hand how many times i have been out in the last 6 weeks lol!!! Where i live it is very quiet and there are not many cars parked so if any strange cars came it would be extremley obvious!!! I have nothing to hide but it still doesnt stop me worrying, the very thought of someone spying on me gives me the creeps!!!

Hope you manage to get this sorted out quickly, though i would question just how they can make a decision based on 3 days surveillance!!!

Millyxxx :-) :hugs:
