I think it is about time we all complained about the work capacity assessment and the companies who carry them out . So many people on here are going through exactly the same thing having their benefits stopped and being told they are fit for work after one of these assessments and like me some have been previously declared unfit for work and put in the support group with the same illness they have now been given zero points for , there is something very suspicious going on . I am going to write to the Rt Hon Damian Green MP , Department for Work and Pensions, Caxton House , Tothill Street , London , SW1H 9NA . This is the mp who was in the news recently talking about stopping repeated reassessment for people with chronic illness that isn't going to improve. I firstly want to make him aware of SLE and secondly ask him if he is aware of the disgraceful way chronically sick people are being treated by the companies the dwp employ to carry out these assessments. I will send my post assessment report which is full of lies together with the proof they have lied . I will send my mandatory reconsideration notice which admits they have lied and also admits they have not followed the guidelines in ESA214 a guide to the WCA . We all assume the dwp are telling these people to lie to get people off benefits maybe that isn't true . Maybe atos give staff bonuses dependant on how many people they get off benefits. The more people who write and complain about this the better , strength in numbers . It seems everyone is getting zero points no matter what their illness , I was speaking to a lady the other day who had severe depression, she was given 27 points and declared unfit for work . When she went back for a reassessment 3 years later still with same condition and on the same treatment she got , can you guess ? , Yes you guessed it ZERO points. Something is very wrong somewhere. I know you may all think writing a complaint might be more stress but we have to speak out and the way I see it it is something else I can be doing to fight this while I am waiting for my appeal date . Please help if you can , also it may be helpful if our administrators could write to Damian Green aswell and invite him to look at all the posts on here and see what people are going through. Thank-you .
