After a ridiculous assessment through ATOS I was classified as 5% disabled (I have asbestosis & emphysema and now pensioned off through ill health) I appealed last year and still awaiting a date for my appeal?Yesterday a got a brown letter with DWP on it.Like a fool I thought ... oh good news inside... They said they have reassessed me and I am now 10% disabled and my new allowance is now a whopping £16.60p a week. Great news, I hear you say? But although my disablement assessment has doubled (which is still a farce at 10%) my actual allowance has gone DOWN by 2p a week !!! Work that one out? Hey -ho still awaiting my appeal date....You've got to laugh or go mad!!! Plumbob
