ESA assessment

Hi

Well I got through the assessment today so just have to wait for the decision now.

I was in a bad way today and had to get a taxi right to the door. I was in agony all the way through. The lady doing the assessment asked me how I was getting home I said I would have to see if any family could pick me up.

To my surprise she said they had ordered me a taxi and paid for it and the security lady took me down in the lift.

Nice - That seems really rare to me, but what a wonderful thing to have happen. Fingers crossed on the assessment..

Thank you so much but I wouldn't read to much into that gesture. I think DWP target people with disabilities to keep reducing any benefits as much as possible.

Take care

yeah, unfortunately, you may be right. We have the opposite here in the states - they pretty much just hand out benefits to whomever is breathing, and sometimes, those that aren't..

The computer company doing the assessment have to do all that is necessary to get it completed, even to the extent of a home visit, they will resist as much as they can as it eats into their profits but that doesn't mean they can avoid their contractual requirements.
