    ESA has no end date. There is a prognosis date, which is when they expect to reassess, but if they don't reassess at that time ESA continues until they DO reassess you.

    To claim SDP you must be living alone and no-one must be claiming Carer's Allowance for looking after you so can you confirm that both those are true in your case?

    An MR is the way forward, but when you make your case, don't try to make it based on the assessor's perceived lack of knowledge as DWP say the assessors are all adequately trained (they don't...

    You do have to declare the money and I believe you're not allowed to pay off debt with it as that is seen as deprivation of capital in order to claim benefits.

    Getting an ongoing award and enhanced too is the best it can possibly be so arguing for extra points serves no purpose. I don't know if an appeal would even be accepted in those circumstances. I'd...

    When I had my last assessment for PIP the assessor gave no indication as to what the award would be, and from her general demeanour I expected the worst, but was pleasantly surprised to be awarded...

    Usually at the assessment, the assessor will ask you how you cope with the various activities in general, not just on one day. The criteria are that to be deemed able to complete an activity...

    I think Scotty1 is right - the State Pension is more than Carer's Allowance and replaces it when you retire. You may be able to have an underlying entitlement which could give you a Carer premium on...

    It's impossible to say, but as your condition has worsened, it could go up.

    I#ve never had a length stated on my award letters, but have always been in support group. Maybe it's different in WRAG?

    ESA doesn't have an end date. It stays in payment until another assessment is done. There will be what they call a prognosis date, which is the date they expect to reassess, but this is never shown...

    You will be paid DLA up to and including 23rd July. I believe DLA is paid 1 week in arrears (someone will correct me on that if I'm mistaken) and 3 in advance so your 9th July DLA payment will be the...

    It can happen that if they believe your evidence is strong enough a decision can be made without a face-to-face. Good luck!

    I think because you live with her she won't be entitled to SDP as she's not "living alone" and can't be treated as such.

    Unfortunately, they send whichever assessor they have available and their past specialism may have absolutely no relevance to your conditions, but their "get out" is that all assessors undergo...

    Yes the CB ESA will be deducted from the UC total amount, then the CB ESA and remaining UC will be paid as two separate payments.

    That's what I said originally - carer's allowance can be claimed and paid but may be taxed depending on the value of the pension.

    I beieve the weekly limit is an earnings limit rather than an income limit, and may not be affected by an occupational pension which is unearned. Maybe a bit of a grey area so it could be worth the...

    Just describe the actual problems you have doing those activities. By the way, the ability to work or not isn't relevant for PIP as people who work can also claim it.

    You can claim carer's allowance if you have an occupational pension (and are under state pension age). It is taxable income though, so if the combination of your pension plus carer's allowance...
