Mandatory reconsiderations have begun

Mandatory reconsiderations have begun


From 28th October 2013, it has become much more difficult to challenge a decision on many benefitsincluding Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Disability Living Allowance (DLA). For all decisions dated 28th October or later a Mandatory Reconsideration must take place before an appeal can be lodged.

The system particularly disadvantages ESA claimants,who will not be eligible to receive ESA at the assessment phase rate until the mandatory reconsideration has been completed and they have lodged an appeal. In the meantime, they will have to either try to claim Jobseeker’s Allowance or have no income replacement benefit at all......

i got my esa stopped they said you can only claim it for a year as my husband was woroking.. even though he on min wage... i use to have 3 jobs... as times got more difficult it went to two then 1 job... then was a stay at home mum with my children.... after being on esa a year it stopped they said they will pay my stamp but that is it as your husband is working... i appealed and sent in medical report from doctors and specialist.. ive got fibro,arthritis,lumbar dysfunction,instability of the hips and spinal curve... but the apeal came back with not entitled to esa benifit.... so im not allowed that or disability... they say im fit to work.. i phoned job seekers to put in a claim but was told im not allowed as was on esa.. and have to wait 1year till i can claim... im either fit or not they cant have it both ways... its all very frustrating,draining,stresful and we are still skint and struggling

If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either

Ive just been to cab today to fill out my esa form as ive had to leave my job as a taxi driver due to fibro & fatigue. The cab obviously hadnt been told the changes then on esa payments as he just told me I would get the allowance for 11 wks then have an atos assessment. Nothing about any changes

Thank you fluffypuppy for the reply. It now makes sense to me the way you have worded it. So it may or may not affect me depending on atos outcome. What is going on with this government allowing such changes to happen with no thought how it will affect vulnerable people emotionally physically & financially! Its hard enough just to cope with daily life with illness let alone go through all this paperwork assessments reports etc!
