Another form!!

Postby Mumihippo » Tue Mar 12, 2013 5:25 pm

I've just had today's post with another ATOS form. It's a limited capability for work form. Can someone please help me understand what it's for. I'm currently on esa, in wrag but asked for a reconsideration in Dec for support group but still waiting. I've been on esa since Aug last year. I'm just confused why I need to fill in similar questions again.

i'm on esa too and have another atos medical this saturday.
theyre a complete waste of time imo.
no-one ever seems to know what anyone else is doing.twice i've been told i have to be examined by a doctor at these appts because i had a brain haem last july. twice i've turned up, despite phoning to check, and found my appt is with a nurse!
my daughter is just 6 mths old and again i was told i didn't need an appt for a year, only to be contacted every week for the last 6/12 asking where i am!!!
i hope you have more success than i seem to have.
i'm currently perfecting my cartwheels for saturdays ridiculous examination! :goodluck1:

Hi mumihippo

You are best to give them a call to find out why they have sent you another form, dont think they know what they are doing themselves. :dunno: :goodluck1:

Tiny229 You might find they are still paying your NI contributions, that is what happened to me and it is what stopped me reapplying sooner. You can reapply after a break of 12 weeks from last receiving ESA, but this 12 week wait includes when they last made NI contributions for you. x

Well I've phoned dwp and been told she didn't know what the form was for. She told me that my reconsideration was still with the decision maker, I sent this in mid Dec!!!!! So I was just told to fill it in and send it away before my payments stopped. Even though she told me that my case was now due a renewal but I should just fill in the form anyway! I only had my assessment a few months ago.
