ESA. 1st trip to jobcentre

Postby linedancer99 » Wed Jan 16, 2013 6:14 pm

Hi all,

I had my 1st review at the jobcentre today after being put into work related group. My personal advisor was quite nice, I expected a 12 year old. :lol:

In the letter it said "to discuss the possibility of going into paid work, training for work or looking for work in the future". I told him when i got there that I thought I was in the qrong group and hoped he would advise me how to appeal as I had left it late.

He asked about my health, what jobs I had done, and then where did I see myself as regards to work. I answered nowhere as i had no idea how my condition would be if I worked.

Long story short he gave me the telephone number to ring to ask for a reconsideration, wrote down how long it would take and what to do if they said no.

I ahve rung the number and been advised to download and fill in form GL24. I have also asked my Doctor for a medical report.

Just hope this works.

If you go to your local citizens advice bureau, they have GL24 forms and will help you fill it in, they can also help with your appeal, just be aware though that you can go to an appeal and be taken of ESA all together, in all honesty it is VERY hard for people with Fibro to get in the support group.

Usually the job centre won't force you into doing some kind of work, so it might me worth thinking about appealing, just giving you the heads up of what could happen.

Good luck

Thanks for advice Fruity72. Must have had a fibro moment yesterday, I remembered that the people who helped me fill in the ESA form had written me an appeal letter before Christmas. I was unsure wether to appeal or not. Went to find letter and there was a GL24 form with it that we had completed at the same time. I will go ahead and appeal and hope for the best. :-D
I had a dodgy hip yesterday when I went for interview which has got worse today, maybe due to the stress of having to go there and not knowing what to expect.
