TOPIC: F2F Assess cancelled due to MP intervention NEXT??

F2F Assess cancelled due to MP intervention NEXT?? 4 months 1 week ago #225901

1. ESA50 was sent late, over two weeks.
2. GP wrote a letter why late, and requested a home assessment.
3. Contacted my MP who kindly contacted DWP/CHAUDUK.
4. I phoned CHAUDUK today to ask if the f2f was still going ahead Tuesday coming
5. I was told and confirmed by em that the f2f was cancelled and didn't need one., I asked
the agent to check if there will be a home assess instead. It was repeated that I didn't
need an assess..

Question: how long will the DWP take to notify me as to: Either they stop my ESA,
or put me in WCA, or stop all benefits? My next payment is supposed to be Thursday
coming...and I dread the payment was stopped. I was told the reason they changed the assess date the 1st time, and gave a second date, was to prevent the DWP from stopping
payments!! Now, if CHDAUK say I don't need an assessment, how can I prevent an error or similar causing payments to be stopped? Thank you.

You cannot be found Fit for Work without your attending a face to face assessment so Maximus is either recommending a WRAG or an SG award. ESA Decisions should be no more than 4-6 weeks.
