I have an urgent question that I was hoping some of you might be able to help. I had qualified for ESA (EMPLOYMENT AND SUPPORT ALLOWANCE) and It was supposed to go on until April 2015. I received a letter yesterday in which it states that an interview has been arranged for me with a personal adviser and attend a Work-focused interview for ESA. I suspect they wish to move me to a Work Related Activity Group and out of Support groups. The issue is since last year my medical condition has worsened as I have been additionally suffering from lower back related problems. I had not sent them any information since I had been receiving ESA and there seemed no reason that I should update them with my new problems. My questions are:
Can/Should I send in my new medical updates to them before my meeting or should I wait and hand them in when I attend the interview?
Do they generally even look at letters from GPs / therapists?
What do they generally ask?
I'm feeling much worse than when I first applied for ESA and now i'm quite scared of what this going to lead to. What do they need to be convinced that I am not fir to attend work-related activity groups.
I'd really appreciate it if you could answer as soon as possible as I 'd need to make arrangements before attending the interview.
