I remember recently telling all how quickly I was assessed for benefits and how soon payments started. Spoke too soon today my second ESA was due,it hasn,t arrived, my sick note ran out 1st june (bank holiday time) I sent my new one in by registered post and it was signed for 3 days later! I foned the DWP centre which cost me £24 fone call because its a premium number and the wait was 25 minutes to speak to an advisor.I found out at this fone call that the "paperwork" we send in goes to Wolverhampton which is only a sorting office! The assessment and payment centre is miles away in Birkenhead! No wonder they say they havn,t received my sick note! I will bring this to the attention of our Mp for DWP this is not acceptable to sick and disabled people.. Anyone else been thru same ordeal??
