Esa tribunel

I thought on the 26th of January that some of my problems were over I attended my tribunal hearing, a very nice man and a nice docter found in my favour. I had a sick certificate until 31stof January so thought I was covered went to job centre phoned relevant people at our wonderful dwp told by two people no you don't need anymore certificates being as you won tribunal. I had to get up at 5.30 this morning to have test at hosp I get back and low and behold I need a sick certificate otherwise I won't get my money Thursday. So had to go docters where the luvly people helped me to get another certificate so I could give it into job centre by 5pm. So the moral of the story is you still need certificates until dwp send you a letter to say that you have won the appeal which takes them 6 weeks to sort out they win again.

Hello Lifeback :)

ahhh.. the run around... would be very helpful to us if those 'in the know' would actually know the correct information wouldn't it?

Congratulations on your win!

LoveLight to You xoxoxox

I just went through my DLA hearing only yesterday and Gosh! I consider myself so lucky this time for not having one for esa too. It's really streessing, painful, frustating and annoying all this red type. I am so sorry for you if no one can do it for you either - you wonder if all these people get the point that you are ILL...I am totally with you.

Congratulations!! And have a good rest.
