TOPIC: ESA

ESA 7 years 8 months ago #78661

Hi. I am currently recieving ESA for 8 months and have been sent a letter that it may stop, what benefits would I then receive? if any, when the one year period is over.
I am currently awaiting feedback from the DWP regarding being moved into the support group! Where do I stand!

I truly do not know how all you people get through everyday life filling in all these forms because you are so ill they seem to justify making you to do it? I can only assume it is done in order to force you not to go ahead with claims? What price society with zero ill people in it I wonder ...

I tend to agree with Eddie P, if they make the whole process so difficult are they hoping people will simply drop their claims rather then go through nightmare that it has become.
If as the gov try to justify it, they are doing it to weed out the fraudster's why not employ more investigators and leave genuine claiments alone.
Back in 1999 my wife worked for a local council as a visiting officer checking claims for housing benefit/council tax benefit, she was on a temporary contract for 12 month's and in that time earning a salary of £14,000 she exposed £250,000 in fraud, the council then refused to make her post permanent!!!!, council logic eh
