    ESA Tribunal Again?

    ESA Tribunal Again? 4th Feb 18 at 3:36 PM
    Hi

    Long time since I posted on here!

    I claimed ESA about 4 years ago, 0 points at the medical, 0 points at MR, won at the tribunal, put in support group (thanks BTW).

    Last Friday attended medical which went badly, like the first one did, and I'm expecting 0 points again. (D!jà vu all over again)

    So here is the question, if, when, I go to the tribunal again, can I cite the previous win, my condition is worse now than it was then.

    And, how many times do I have to win at the tribunal before the DWP get the message? (assuming I win again of course!)

    Many thanks for any help given.

    Hi Alice

    Yes very strange, the is only 3 sheets, and one doesn't really have anything on it, There is no mention of points.

    The last time I failed the WCA they sent me a huge envelope with a book like report (full of lies BTW) The letter saying that my benefits have stopped and all the stuff to claim JSA/Housing benefit etc etc...

    I will phone Monday to try and clarify that this is indeed a decision letter, although I'm afraid to get my hopes up until someone says in clear language that they have kept me on ESA.

    Thanks for helping.

    Hi JJWSJS8700

    I just read your thread, and your case, if you don't mind me saying, is very complicated and quite different to mine.

    Anyway, I'll phone the free line (thanks Jeremy Corbyn) tomorrow and see what they say.

    After re-reading the letter a dozen times, it can't really be anything other than a positive benefit decision notice.

    Update

    Phoned DWP, 20 min wait, but who cares when it's free!

    Yes, I've been kept in Support Group, recommend re assessment 18 months.

    I suspect I won't be sent for, for 3 years?

    https://dpac.uk.net/2017/12/new-dwp-freephone-numbers-no-uc-number/

    I used the Benefit enquiry line 08001690310.

    So that's it, I expected this thread to run and run, but it seems the DWP do sometimes get it right.

    BTW sorry for all the typo's and mistakes in my posts above.

    And thanks for helping.

    Hi Poppy

    Yeah, I'm over the moon.

    If they do leave my re assessment 3 years, which they did last time, I'll be 65 anyway. Assuming that I'm spared that long!

    Can't see a Tribunal failing me at 65, but we will see.
