TOPIC: Just a thank you to you all,

Just a thank you to you all, 2 years 5 months ago #125016

I have been on ESA for over 3 years (WRAG), after three visits to the job centre they put me on telephone interviews every six months with no problems. In January 2014 i had the dreaded ESA50 form to fill in, i had heard of Benefits & Work group through a Facebook group and joined to get all the information i could to help me with the form.
My basic problem was that i haven't seen a consultant at the hospital for approx 18 months, they have virtually written me off, i have just been referred to the chronic pain relief unit, so i didn't have any recent paperwork to send in with the ESA50.
Thanks to downloading your guides, my wife read every page and waded through the forms, after 9 months i have just received a letter from DWP putting me straight into the Support group without the dreaded "medical".
We are both very grateful for your help and for the sake of less than £20 our immediate stress and worry has faded into the background.
If there is anyone wondering if subscribing is worth it.......go for it, worth every penny.

Apologies if i shouldn't have started a new topic but this is my very first post on here so i plead ignorance !! ( or the effects of the morphine ;) ).

Hi,

Yes, it is fine for you to start a new topic, we are always pleased to hear good news !! :)

If your forum name is also your real name, you may wish to change it to maintain some anonymity.

This can be done quite easily by following the instructions on this FAQ :

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

Well done for gaining entry to The SG without the need for a face to face !!! :cheer:

Thanks very much for the comments regarding B&W they are much appreciated.

If you are not aware of the recommended period of your SG award before reassessment and wish to obtain the necessary documentation that may help at your next reassessment, you may wish to read a previous post of mine regarding this, : Here.
