I have been on ESA (work-related activity group)....since last November, previously on IB...for 10 years... I appealed against being put into this group and not the support group as soon as I received it...I went to appeal on Tuesday last and today have received a letter from the Tribunal Court... I WON.......on the bases of Schedule 3 of the ESA Regulations 2008.....1....this is the mobility Regulation...and they have added that I should not be assed again for 6 mths.....I'll be receiving state pension in June next year...and I can then be free of ESA for good...Comes to something when getting old is the best thing to happen to me. The down side of this joy is that...regardless of what the descison had been it won't make one bit of difference to the pain I'm in every minute of the day or nigh or they way I live my life...all it has done and what I'm so grateful for ...is that it will not now have to worry so much about being with out the money coming in.......If your waiting to go to appeal I wish you luck and go prepared with as much paper work with regard to hospital appointments and reports from specialist and your GP...
