TOPIC: A bit confused

A bit confused 9 years 4 months ago #32076

  • harley
Hi,

I have been on Incapacity benefit since 2000. and have filled in the PCA ever since usually every 2 years. I have now received my form to fill in again, will I now be moved on to ESA or will it still be IB, I'm sorry I know the mods are very busy, but I'm just confused by everything that's going on at the moment.

Thank you

Harley :(

If you live in Burnley or Aberdeen, you will be assessed for ESA using the WCA. If you live elsewhere, you will be assessed for renewal of IB using the PCA (the test they used before).

Hi Survivor,

thanks so much for your quick reply, I live in the North East, so no ESA yet, not that I understand any of it. Over the last years I have had so many problems with my health, that I am now on Total Parenteral Nuitrition every day, and will be for the rest of my life, along with all the other things, I sometimes feel like I'm on a runaway train, and can't get off.

Once again many thanks

Harley
