TOPIC: Worried about next medical. Please help

Worried about next medical. Please help 7 years 5 months ago #14093

I'm on IB and have been for nearly 4 years. My next medical was supposed to have been the end of September this year, but I've still haven't heard anything.

I'm now beginning to suspect that they're delaying my medical to the new year just so they can migrate me over to ESA. If they do this can I complain? If the medical had been done when It was supposed to have been I would have received IB.

I suffer from a chromic pain disorder as well as a chronic fatigue (amongst other things, It's all very complected) and I live in a bedsit. My Mother died a few years ago and left me a house which I still haven't got around to getting the probate for due to being mentally and physically just not well enough to deal with it all (the house is two hours away and I don't own a car and I have no friends or anyone to help me).

I know ESA is means tested and so If I haven't manged to sort out probate etc before hand will I have my benefit cut off?

So you got sent and IB medical not an ESA one? Thing is you've been sent it during this year, not next, so I wonder If that makes a difference.

I'm so worried that I'm going to be facing an ESA when I'm not prepared for it.
