I put in a new claim for esa, probably about 15/16 weeks ago, having had a previous claim turned down after appeal(for a different illness).
I was due to attend an Atos assessment next week but received a letter yesterday cancelling the appointment, so don't now know when I'm to attend?
I understood that after 13 weeks that I was to be placed either in a wrag or support group, and, that the £71 benefit was to be increased?
Is the 13 week period stipulated dependent on the result of the atos assessment i.e. do I have to wait until Atos can 'see' me before I get assigned to the wrag or support group, or, have to appeal against the decision - and will I have to stay on a measly £71 'til then?
Any help would be appreciated.
