Has anyone had any experience of going through medical retirement. I work for the DWP and as part of their attendance policy medical retirement was brought up quite early on in my illness. At the time I hadn't considered it but as time went by I decided I would like to apply. This was in April and I am still no further forward. The trouble is everything is outsourced so my application went to an HR provider and then onto another outsourced company called Health management. I have been chasing this since June and have even got my MP involved who has written letters and tried to chase it. I have approached my union and they don't seem interested. So 6 months later I am no further forward and am now on nil pay. My employer advised me to claim benefits!Yes I know I did say I work for the DWP!!!! Everyday I wait for the postman to bring me some news. I have run out of ideas on who to contact to help me as it's obvious no one cares. I am at rock bottom. Has anyone had a similar experience or any ideas. I guess they just want me to resign but they suggested it not me.
