Employment and Support Allowance
Are you struggling with employment and support allowance?
Are you completely confused?
We’re not surprised. Employment and support allowance is the most bewildering, unfair and badly designed benefit since the abolition of the workhouse.
The claim form is long, complex and often confusing.
The medical is carried out using a computer. It’s often rushed and it may not even be a doctor that assesses you.
The appeal system is deeply confusing, not least because employment and support allowance procedures and regulations are extremely complex and generate a huge amount of paperwork.
And because employment and support allowance is so complicated there is very little reliable information on the internet.
Jobcentre Plus offices frequently give incorrect advice.
And advice agencies just don’t have enough staff to deal with everyone who needs help.
It is possible, though, to understand how to complete the claim form and avoid the traps it sets for the unwary and unprepared.
And you can turn up to your medical knowing what will happen and what kind of questions you’ll be asked.
Even if you do have to appeal, it’s possible to understand the process and present your case in the most effective and convincing way.
Benefits and Work members achieve all this.
Because Benefits and Work is completely independent and we only care about helping you get the benefits you’re entitled to. We do this by providing you with the most honest, detailed and practical information available anywhere.
