ESA decision timetable? 1 week 3 days ago #175031

Hi Gordon,

Indeed I will do that. I will download the relevant forms mentioned above, in the instructions and my call to the Tribunal office at least this will be covered in the one month deadline. The lady said to mention further evidence will follow and this can be submitted on my return. I can post it from there I will have a look at the form see how much work it requires as only have today and tomorrow I am trying to finish my appointments basically including weekends went to Jobcentre plus now need to download all the information as Internet is not as good as over here. It is not about money as I will be losing out by £7 pw but the fact that the assessor has contradicted everything I have said. Its matter of principles also at the end of the day to prove to them that I am not lying about my health and mobility. I wont keep my hope high though at the appeal either.

The lady at JC said that now we have to pay for the tribunal I need to find out about this. But she was shocked too of the decision after sitting with me for 30 minutes and talking to me

Hello Gordon,

I am just completing the SSCS1 form to send off to the tribunal so that I am within the deadline. I need to complete the section reason for my appeal. Could you please send me a link for the appeals I have tried looking but cannot find it. I did find it before (I guess I'm not with it at all due to the time pressure) please can you tell me can I just put basic reason for my appeal at this stage and inform them that I will be submitting additional details on my return ? as I need to go through the bullet points by the assessor of course I don't want to criticize but rather focus on explaining them my reasons regarding my polio lack of mobility and also enclose the photographs Dr's letter on my return all these will have to follow but at least I will have met the dead line. I only have till 5.30 to send this off by recorded delivery/registered post. but I won't be here to response to any ones letters during my absence. I would appreciate your response so I can crack on the form if there's a link showing example of how to write reasons on the SSC1 form please. thank you very much

The ESA MR & A[peal guide is on the following link

www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/help-for-claimants/esa1

You don't need to provide detailed reasons for requesting the appeal at this stage, these should be submitted once you have seen all of the evidence and testimony from the DWP which will be sent to you once your appeal has been accepted.
