    Pensioners are a different kettle of fish to working age benefit claimants tho in politics, the tories have long been a pensioner party. I cannot see a 3.9% rise in benefits. A best case is the...

    Above the rate of inflation? probably no.

    Although UC already did provide the biggest boost for decades for some people.

    A normal paper assessment would still provide a decision letter so you would know unless the letter got lost.

    But a deferral the claimant isnt told.

    I think there is cherry picking going on,...

    I got mine within a week (if I remember right was 2 working days as it included a weekend). Someone else close time to me also got hers very quickly as well. But my form was filled in over the...

    Agree with nukecad, the fact you not got the form, and have a home appointment suggests there is already "some" recognition of your problems.

    nothing more annoying than a HCP thinking you not in pain, that applies whether they work in a hospital or for a DWP AP.

    Judging someone based on the painkillers they have access to is ridiculous.

    probably not, even if ESA is stopped notice would be given and would be some time before cease of payments unless it was an immediate effect for fraud reasons. I would be surprised if a decision of...

    postcode lottery, I usually get a 1-2 week wait after ESA50 (quite quick).

    But for some reason once they aware I want it recorded it slows then right down and I then have to often wait months.

    I meant my protected HB been lowered to LHA rates if I moved to UC. The increase of LCWRA (before I got SDP) would have countered that. Its very easy to forget about the few of us on transitional...

    yes contributions have to have continuity in the years leading up to a claim. On a CB benefit that continuity is preserved as DWP makes the contributions on behalf of the claimant. So a CB benefit...

    fiction.

    I dont know who said that, I said on scope a few times there is an element of anti fraud in F2F assessments, but its far from a criminal interrogation.

    I think they have procedures...

    There should be no recognition of an IB award on ESA tho right? max is 3 years and the WCA is different to a PCA. So really it should only be paper based if the evidence is there to allow it.

    I am not knocking it just wanting to make sure people are aware tho.

    In my case even with the LHA change I would have been better off on UC before I got SDP.

    I believe there isnt very many...

    Also that as things stand (unless they recently changed it), if you on HB transitional protection in private rental, that protection is lost on UC. Would revert to lower LHA rates.

    Thanks for the insight kelly, can I ask if this is due to anxiety issues going outside?

    These specific descriptors seem up in the air, as AP's seem to be only assessing if people can use a GPS or...

    I dont know where I stand on opinion. A lot of people do advise to not worry about the assessor and report and just make your case as to why you meet descriptors. I am ok with that in general.

    I will probably have at least another 3 WCA's before my PIP award ends (and probably also before any migration for me onto UC) so I am nowhere near thinking about that, because anything can happen on...

    Never heard of this been done before.

    So you rang asking for a reconsideration and then got a new descriptor ruling on the very same day?

    I believe the letter is sent by the DWP "after" they get the...

    That sounds absolutely crazy, logically they should be done by now, so I am thinking they must be hard cases or something that is making them avoid those people.

    Given how long it took to get everyone from IB to ESA, there is no way I think they will complete this by 2023. But its a wait and see I guess.
