Hope you can help? I got a phone call Tuesday to say I had not been awarded ESA because i needed to get 15 points and got NONE!!!!! The "lovely" woman then told me to apply for jobseekers! I told her i wanted to appeal and she said the forms and letter will be sent out to me. I went to Job centre, they asked "am i fit for work" and I said "No! but some pen pushing jobsworth at ATOS knows better than my GP and consultants". The lady in the job centre really was lovely and gave me a GL24 form to appeal, she told me to fill it in, get a sick note from my GP and send it off asap.... Now my question is... the box to say why im appealing is tiny, Is it important to add pages too the form at this stage? should I send a FULL appeal letter at this stage or is it enough to just put a few lines in the box and send a full lengthy letter with medical evidence later?? sorry for the length of this post, any advice would be really appreciated x
