WRAG 7 years 8 months ago #97675

:(Two years ago I filled in the ESA form with all medical evidence etc, sent it off and I was put in the wrag, I appealed and was upgraded to the support group, Last year (August 2012) I again filled in the esa for, today 21st Jan 2013 I received a letter telling me that I am back in the wrag, how these people come to these decisions given the my condition has got worse over the last 15 months is beyond me, I am completely at a loss as to what to do, I struggle to fill the damn forms in as it is and all this stuff that I have to do makes me wonder if I wouldnt be better off in a nice warm coffin, I just cant cope with all this crap, I am useless with it all..... :S

Hi M,

Please try not to get too dispondent. :)

I don't know whether you were aware of this, but some of the descriptors would have changed from when you first filled in an ESA50, (pre March 2011) to when you filled one in August 2012.

I am afraid that you would have to appeal once more, if you feel that you qualify for The SG.

You can download a GL24 Form from the link on this page :

How to submit an appeal

See also :

Do I have to attend WFIs while I appeal?

What will I be paid while I appeal?

Is there any risk to challenging a decision?

Where to get advice?

You should read all our : Appeals FAQ’s

And our : ESA FAQ’s

Specifically : 12 Month Limit for ESA(CB)

Work Focussed Interviews

Work Programme

Changes to ESA Sanctions

You may wish to request the the ESA85A report, (if you didn't have a face to face, ESA85 if you did) as well as any other ESA forms that may be available, see :

ESA Forms

ESA medical – what forms to ask for? , This can be done by ringing the number of the office that is dealing with your ESA, we advise that it should be backed up with a written request.

You may also wish to review our ESA Appeals & ESA Claims Guides , 5th, 3rd and 4th links down respectively.

Please repost on this topic if you have any further queries.
