Hi I was wondering could anybody help me?
In April 2011 I had to leave my job due to sickness and I went onto to ESA, in August 2011 I went for a medical with ATOS and scored 0 points. I appealed the decision but it wasn't over turned and it went to appeal. I had my first appeal in February 2012 and it was adjourned due to not enough evidence. I had another hearing in April which was also adjourned why the court sent for my medical records. On the 6th July 2012 I had another hearing and on this occasion it was ruled in my favour and I was awarded enough points and placed in the work activity group.
Ive spoke to the DWP numerous times and have been told to give 8 weeks for arrears, I've had nothing in writing only from the court and it's 7 weeks today and still heard nothing.
Is this normal? And when if any do I get arrears from and how much is the WrAG? Sorry for all the questions but nobody at DWP is answering my questions!
