Hi Tommo,

Nothing happens after the interviews until the next time your incapacity is reviewed. At that point you may have to have one or more further WFIs.

Many thanks for your quick reply Steve... I have another question I'm worried about regarding Mortgage Interest payments, as I get help with this at the moment although this has been reduced recently for no apparent reason, ESA are looking into it as I type..But do you know what happens next when the WFI end....?

Hi Tommo,

The WFI's ending won't affect your ESA payments.

In theory claimants shouldn't have their WFIs until after they've had their medical and a decision has been made about eligibility for ESA.

In practice it's all a complete mess.

Hello

I've just been place in the WRAG and I wonder if anyone knows what happens if you are too ill to attend, as I would be?

I'm going to go ahead and ask for a reconsideration/appeal, not sure which one yet even after reading through this site.

I have multiple medical conditions which means I do not cope well on a day-to-day basis. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks
