ESA assessment 1 year 11 months ago #241682

A huge thank you to every one at Benefitsandwork. Although I thought I knew the system inside out, I used your excellent guides and passed my recent esa assessment. I have been retained in the support group and my relief is indescribable. Last time I was assessed, I was given zero points and had an 8 month fight to tribunal , to get my esa reinstated in the support group.
I can't believe how the dwp can keep on getting away with this disgraceful system. I was given zero points by a retired asthma nurse who knew nothing about my condition and that was inspite of overwhelming medical evidence from my highly respected specialist. Thankfully I had a specialist on the panel for my tribunal.
This time I was assessed by a very efficient young doctor. He asked none of the insulting questions that so many of us get asked, stuck solely to my condition and how it affected me daily and was extremely fair. Maybe I just got lucky but I know the guides were also totally invaluable.
Thank you all so much once again.
It's encouraged me to apply for Pips, which I've continually been told I should apply for but have been too scared to. My confidence has increased so much with your help.
Thank you

Hi Foxy

Congratulations on your ESA award. So glad to hear that you had a good assessor and a positive outcome.

If you're going to go for PIP just fill out the form as diligently as you did your ESA one following our guides. Good luck if you decide to apply.
