  • Hi junebee,

    There is a really good factsheet from Disability Rights UK that you can download on how to write an appeal submission. I have put a link to below for you. I hope you find it useful:

  • thank you I looked at that got help from dial .someone is coming to see me and help me its happening to a lot of others .I think they want you to give up trying so the numbers get reduced I have never asked for help in my life ,I have given help to others all my life as a unpaid carer now iam very ill I cant get help I feel in a very dark tunnel with only a small light at the end , never mind I will be 60 in the morning that is a great mile stone for me .due to a heart condition as a child I was told I would only live to be 14yrs old .so there I have determination

  • Oh I'm sorry to hear this. I haven't yet applied though I haven't hardly been out of the house for the past 6 months. I lost my job due to RA over two years ago and at the time I thought I was unable to claim esa because of my husbands job. I recently learnt I should've been awarded it in my own right but they refused me because I haven't paid tax in the past 12 months? Err Yeah because i lost my job?? Felt so stressed and upset by it I couldn't face appealing and it's put me off a claim for pip. Even though my dr says I should. It feels like they are trying to grind down people with this illness. Not really relevant to your post but just wanted to say I wish you luck with your decision and understand the stress. Being turned down like this is the last thing you need when it's a struggle day to day xxx

  • Sorry to hear your news, you must be gutted. Best of luck with the appeal, so glad you're getting help with it, they will know exactly how to word it.

    Happy birthday for tomorrow, have a great day, and try not to worry about this. M x
