New claim for ESA 7 years 6 months ago #98475

Hi I am CB ESA ( long expired 365 rule) and have a tribunal hearing next week, hopefully with all your advice I will win!!

But if I dont I would like to apply again as my condition has deterorated.

The DWP has said they dont want me to have anothe medical for 3 years ( Ive been parked) and that they are not going to pay my stamps anymore, presumably because I have 45 years full stamps already.

As contribution based ESA goes on the last year of your contributions will I still be eligable?

Thanks

I assume that you are appeaing for Support Group having been awarded WRAG? If this is the case, you can ask for a supersession in future, on the grounds that your condition has worstened, as long as you have kept your ESA claim live meanwhile. If you break your claim at any stage (by not returning ESA50 or attending 'medical' when required or telling DWP that you no longer wish to claim) you would not have the NI contributions to reclaim contributary benefit and would have to rely on meeting the means test for income-related ESA.

This seems so unfair, they seem to have me always. I have been fighting this since march 2011.

This is even more pressure on me for the tribunal.

Thankyou for the info.

regards

Was I correct in assuming hat you are appealing to get into the Support Group from WRAG, or are you appealing against a 'fit to work' decision?
