Thought I would share some good news with you all.
A year ago I was moved from the ESA support group to the WRAG for two years despite detailing how I have worsened since my last assesment. I appealed straight away and as the months went on I had still heard nothing despite being told it takes 3-4 months then 5-6 then 8 months and then finally over a year for appeals to be considered !!
Not impressed that the DWP were quick enough to send me letters telling me that my money would be stopped in a months time then a weeks time but cant sort out my appeal in under a year I wrote to my MP telling him my problems and two days later I had phone call from his office just to ask a few more details and yes they will try and help me.
I heard nothing else for a month then on the day my money was due to stop a letter came to say my appeal had been looked at and that I had been moved back into the support group ! Result
This is where it gets even better. A week later I get a phone call from a nice lady at the job centre apologising profusely for the delay with my appeal and would like make a token payment of £50 for all of the trouble I had been through !!
Im not sure what my MP said or did but fair do’s to him it worked and its things like this that put a little faith back into MPs for me and perhaps others might get some joy if they involved their MP more directly with the nonsense we have to put up with,worth a try surely ? there is nothing to lose.
