ESA Decision 2 weeks 1 day ago #170426

Hello, I have lost my ESA due to 0 points awarded, I have phoned to make a MR, the advisor asked I would like to claim Jobseekers allowance,
I was worried if I said yes I would have to look for work and not receive anything is I refused,
I said yes and was put through to an advisor, we filled a form in online, mad an appointment
will I receive any benefit if I attend this appointment,
the advisor did say I would need some income while waiting for the decision

Hi Mary,

I have merged your query with the previous topic relating to your ESA. It helps us enormously when everything relating to the same claim is kept in one place.

Once your JSA claim has been accepted you can submit a sick note for up to 13 weeks and be excused job seeking activities during this time. Signing on for JSA is the only way you will get an income during the MR period.

Now that your MR request has been submitted (although we do suggest you back this up in writing as phone requests do tend to get lost!) you now need to clearly show DWP how and why you should have scored points against the ESA descriptors.

Please reply to this message with further questions or comments and we will do our best to help.
Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
