Having been declared fit enough to return to work by Atos, I have recently been made aware by Jobcentre Plus that I can't claim JSA because of my severe COPD and the osteoarthritis I've suffered with over the years - though I can still sign on as unemployed and have my NI stamp paid.
I'm not allowed to claim ESA because I'm not unhealthy enough according to Atos Nurse and the decision maker at the DWP. So no benefit paid whatsoever by either.
The nightmare scenario has arrived for me personally. I really do hope that you never find yourself in the same desperate situation as I. Good health to everyone and have a great Spring Bank Holiday!
