Please can you tell me if I should now write to confirm what's happened today.....just found this advice for cancellations? If so, it suggests writing to the DWP.....where would I find this address,,,is it the one on the letter confiming my appointments ie The Health Advisory Service?
Thank you


It can't hurt the address will be on letter that you have received from the DWP (aka JobCenterPlus), it will be an address in Wolverhampton.

It is definitely not the Health Advisory Service.

Hello

Just to let you know that after initially being given an appointment for a F2F at an assessment centre and then learning I could ask for a home assessment( and to be recorded), ....another doctor wrote a letter requesting this and to my amazement I received a letter to say I'd been placed in the support group without F2F assessment. Needless to say I'm, delighted, relieved and extremely grateful to Gordon and Mrs Hurty back for all your guidance and support..... .thank you very much.....without you there would have been a very different outcome. All the very best to everyone and thank you to those who offered support.

i don't know how long the award's for.....I'm thinking of ringing them...is that ok?

Thank you

Sue

Thank you very much Gordon and for being so patient in guiding me through it all step by step...I'm very grateful. I rang DWP and the award's for two years. If this is so it will mean I should have one more assessment at almost 65 before being eligible for a pension at 66.

I've been reading about the ESA 85A and considering asking for a copy as it will give more information regarding the descriptors for next time. I'm deliberating whether to ask now or let things be and ask nearer the time of the review. Would you say this is something that's useful to have please?

Thanks

It is usually useful to have, I would request it now as the office dealing with your claim will have your paperwork to hand, if you leave it then it will be filed and may even end up in offsite storage which could mean it taking a long time to be sent.
