Do you get payment while waiting for a decision?

Postby Davesmum » Thu May 22, 2014 1:59 pm

Hiya, sorry for all the questions, but I haven't had a payment since February and I was wondering if you are supposed to get any sort of payment while waiting for them to decide on your claim or not?

Are you asking in relation to ESA or DLA/PIP???

You should be being paid the assessment rate until they make there decision. Your GP would have had to sign you off for this period for them to pay you and until they do not request anymore certificates.

I've always sent in notes from Dr when asked, haven't had a penny since end of Feb :(
Have had to beg and borrow from the other half and family, who can't really afford to.

Have been told that because my o/h works 20 hours a week, it cancels out any claim for ESA.
Ive just applied for PIP,whatever that is!
This whole process is utterly soul destroying.
