Hilly 1 ESA 0

Yahy I have finally had my brown envelope and after asking for the second time for a re consideration they have decided I can be placed in the support group from the wrag group. As I was on the contributions esa and had been on it more than 12 months my money had stopped at the end of april, so now I get my money back yippee doo!! Not only that they are going to back date it til then, even better news. I can feel the stress leaving my body as I type not having to worry how we will survive with me loosing my money, this is the best news I've had in a very long time. My message to everyone is don't give up the fight to what you are entitled to, even though it is stress that we should not be having to deal with, gentle hugs to you all Hilly xx

    Such fantastic news! Well done girl!

    It took me 2 years to get my DLA - after appealing just once - and though it was backdated - they made me wait a further 3 months before paying me - the stress o wondering WHEN they finally let me eat -let alone pay my bills etc., was making me so ill. There was uproar over it and they've promised as soon as I'm given the yes vote in future, it get my money withing 3 days. They kept their promise - so far!

  • i went to my job centre for an appointment with my "advisor",and for once they were on my side.she was appalled that i was on wrag instead of support group, i must admit i did not fully understand the difference,so she explained and advised me to appeal.so i filled out appeal forms and yet again photocopied numerous docs letter etc,before you new it i had a phone call from esa, telling me that i did not need to go ahead with my appeal, and that i had been put in the wrong group and should have been on support group from beginning. buut was told that i would be going for yet another dreaded medical[im in bits now just waiting for letter] asked for doctor who was knowledgeable/compassionate to fibro,she said that wasnt up to them?? but to tell atos thid when they make appointment.soooo ive invested in tape recorder,and am taking this to medical with me,i believe that as long as i make them aware at medical that there will be no problem using the tape ??does antone know if this is correct? just sick of all the lies atos write on their forms. would be grateful for any input.
