    Well, at least the long wait is over. Spoke to DWP today who confirmed a letter is in the post rejecting my PIP reconsideration request. TBH while hoping against hope I really wasn't expecting...

    Hi, I had my first assessment two years ago...

    Hi,

    I had my first assessment two years ago and after not hearing from them for a few weeks afterwards I called them and they told me over the phone I'd been put into the WRAG. Confirmation letter...
  3. Ah well, I'd hoped I'd spotted a loophole. Yes, I...

    Ah well, I'd hoped I'd spotted a loophole. Yes, I can see it's different companies but the assessors aren't directly employed by ATOS et al. That's why I was thinking I might get the same one. That...
  4. Yes, I'm exactly the same as you - 15 points on...

    Yes, I'm exactly the same as you - 15 points on consciousness. If it hadn't been for the PIP experience I don't think I'd be at all worried as there have been no changes for the better, if anything a...
  5. That’s very clear, thanks. I’m far more confident...

    That’s very clear, thanks. I’m far more confident about winning an appeal for ESA than PIP- It really shouldn’t go that far as there has been no change for the better in the activity I scored points...
  6. So they would be aware I've had a PIP assessment...

    So they would be aware I've had a PIP assessment then but just not bother to look at it? That's disturbing as it might lead to opinion being formed before interview. I'm more confident of winning any...
  7. Sorry, one more thing. Is everything separate? I...

    Sorry, one more thing. Is everything separate? I mean can or will the person conducting the ESA review have access to my PIP interview and report?
  8. That’s very helpful, thank you. If the worst...

    That’s very helpful, thank you. If the worst comes to the worst and ESA ends then it would appear I need to get a UC claim in straight away providing evidence of the date of decision. Though that...
  9. Thank you very much. From what you’re saying it...

    Thank you very much. From what you’re saying it would appear they’re giving me a review after two years rather than the one year recommended at initial assessment. Thanks also for clarification on...
  10. I'm not sure whether I should start a new thread...

    I'm not sure whether I should start a new thread or not but I've received a work capability assessment questionnaire today. What I'd like to know is if the left hand knows what the right hand is...
  11. I'm not trying to discredit the assessor as an...

    I'm not trying to discredit the assessor as an individual but the validity of her report. I'm thinking if I can demonstrate that there are a number of FACTUAL errors throughout - which there are and...
  12. Another thought struck me and that's the role -...

    Another thought struck me and that's the role - or non-role - of the health professional at appeal. As I understand it usually the only people present at the tribunal are the appellant and the DWP...
  13. Yes, I'd imagine it's effective in keeping...

    Yes, I'd imagine it's effective in keeping numbers down. First, not everyone is going to ask for one. Second, length of process will also deter. Third, prospect of tribunal will further scare folk...
  14. Oh I don't expect to win on MR though I am aware...

    Oh I don't expect to win on MR though I am aware that success rates are slowly creeping up. I just hope it doesn't go the full ten weeks before getting a reply as I want to get the appeal process...
  15. Well, that's the reconsideration in and received...

    Well, that's the reconsideration in and received by DWP - kept a screenshot of the 'signed for' from Royal Mail track and trace just in case. Things have moved pretty fast - by DWP standards - so...
  16. That's a very useful reminder. Thanks

    That's a very useful reminder. Thanks
  17. I get something called the work related activity...

    I get something called the work related activity component (I think that's the term) of just under £30 per week which IIRC I didn't get initially on ESA but started being awarded after being placed...
  18. Really? So that means if there is a precedent...

    Really? So that means if there is a precedent that strengthens my case I have to rely on the Judge being aware of it? As decisions that can establish a precedent must be made fairly often would the...
  19. Thanks. I'll look up that forum you mentioned.

    Thanks. I'll look up that forum you mentioned.
  20. To be clear I mean Nukecad's original post,...

    To be clear I mean Nukecad's original post, he/she having posted again while I was writing the above
  21. I had to give up work in early 2017. It had been...

    I had to give up work in early 2017. It had been about 25 years since I was last unemployed so I was aware the benefits system wasn't the same. I went to CAB for advice and they said to claim ESA...
  22. Ah, missed that edit. Thanks. If and when the MR...

    Ah, missed that edit. Thanks. If and when the MR is rejected then the next step before submission to tribunal will be to look at case law examples to see if there's anything similar to my...
  23. I'd imagine the Judge would be reluctant to...

    I'd imagine the Judge would be reluctant to overrule professionals so they need to be persuaded too. I wonder what's meant by a disability adviser? I can see how a GP fits in absolutely as the nature...
  24. That's my thinking exactly. As it was with the...

    That's my thinking exactly. As it was with the HMRC tribunal
  25. Thank you. I suspect that figure is even higher...

    Thank you. I suspect that figure is even higher if you subtract where the appellant doesn't turn up in person. Having undergone the process before with success - albeit with a different department...
