My Girlfriend went to a esa medical on 05/01/12, she failed this medical scoring only 9 points. she sent in the appeal form Gl24 and asked to be paid at the assessment rate of esa.
The appeal was reconsidered by a decision maker on 01/05/12 and they agreed with the medical and said she was fit for work. On the 25/05/12 she recieved a letter stating theu appeal would be heard by a independant tribunal.
Today she was meant to be paid but wasn't. We phoned up the dwp and got told that the dwp won't pay the assessment rate whil
e it is waiting for an appeal. She got told to sign on jsa, is this correct?
