Last May i was awarded ESA with support by tribunal, was called for another medical in September, the outcome of medical was to be put in work related activity group, I wrote to DWP and informed my adviser at Job centre plus in October that i did not agree with this and could they have a change of opinion.Received acknowledgment of letter but i am still awaiting a decision, just had appointment at Job centre and adviser cannot beleive they have not even given her an explantion other than it can take decision maker up to six months ??
Has anyone come across this before.

Hi S,

The DWP often make mistakes. You can complain by following the advice in Complaints and Appeals

Good luck.
