Hi everyone,just an update,,after all my hard work to gain extra care ..writing my life story...answering all questions...using DMG criteria...the DWP in all their wisdom still refuse..their reasons for this are claim letter...mental health letter..ATOS report [???]..even though i pass every criteria etc!!! it beggers belief folks!!! so i have now to go to tribunal....AGAIN!! so i have enrolled the help of ..mybenifitclaim...i must say i feel a 100% better as everything is taken off my worried shoulders..they promised that they would read all my information then give me an honest answer as to if i have a valid case..if not they start again and fill in claim form again..bit of a drag but im not giving in!!..why do we have to fight so hard??? and i have just read that the politicians are to recieve a £20,000 wage rise!!!. ..i feel very disheartened as i was sure after all the time i put in..i had covered everything!! obviously not! xxx
