Hi, I have now been unemployed for over a year as I had to give up work because of my arthritis, I have always worked full-time, now in my 50's, I started claiming late last year, took me a while to figure out what benefits!!, got PIP before I left work and started claiming ESA late last year, I went for a Health Assessment and now been told I have to go onto a work related activity, it's not the thought of working but my ability to do the work that's got me worried and stressed.
Has anyone else gone through this and what are your thoughts on it. Do you have the choice of what work you are doing? The hours you work? etc etc. Value your views please
