Hi everyone Am feeling very stressed today. have got my tribunal this afternoon as atos have said I am fit for work! Have received contribution based esa for two years which ran out in april this year. before that I had always worked. I am sure this story is familiar to a lot of you.I have waited nine months for this tribunal. I phoned jobcentre plus to see if I could reclaim for ESA but my contributions have now ran out, so it doesnt seem to matter how long you may have worked for ,they only take from the last couple of years. can,t claim income related esa as my hubby works. Without that extra money coming in we scrape by. Have gone from being totally independent to being totally reliant on my hubby. But I am still going to the tribunal as its the principal. well tomorrow is another day just have to keep on smiling. thanks for letting me have a moan. Best wishes to all. sharon.
