    Ok is he disabled or is he not, I do not know seems nor does the ESA

    FATHER of five crippled with chronic arthritis, heart disease and gout was told he was fit enough to work as part of a review of disability benefit claimants.

    Said Rohamed, aged 64, was forced to give up work at the GKN Hardy Spicer factory in Erdington 15 years ago due to his arthritis.

    He has been claiming Disabled Living Allowances (DLA) for care and mobility, currently worth about 400 a month, ever since.

    The divorced father, who has three grown-up sons and two daughters, has also suffered a heart attack, survived prostrate cancer and has asthma.

    But, following a 20-minute interview with a Department for Work and Pensions doctor, his DLA was stopped because he was deemed fit enough to work.

    The decision also meant that Mr Rohamed, who lives alone in a flat in Bridley Drive in Birmingham city centre, would have to give up his mobility scooter

    Seems to be wires crossed somewhere. What has DLA got to do with work? Doesn't add up!

    Well it seems if your placed onto JSA the DWP think this means your not disabled and they are with drawing DLA, because if your deemed able to work but with help this means your disabled but could work with help and they do not stop your DLA but list you for review.

    But if your sent back onto JSA this means your totally able to work.

    Do not forget although you can work and get DLA the amount and type of work you do is restrictive, I mean if your working on a building site building walls your highly unlikely to get DLA. If your an office cleaner in a wheelchair who then cleans an office without help or assistance your heading for a review, if you cleaning an office in a wheelchair and need special equipment then your likely to be deemed disabled.

    It may seem stupid but like it or not things are getting much much harder.
