Hi,

I can see that Derek is giving you excellent advice, and don't want to intercede.

However, this thread on rightsnet via the link below, talks of a WCA, while appealing.

www.rightsnet.org.uk/forums/viewthread/1722/

It may enlighten further, it appears that you are not alone.

cheers

Thanks for the Link Bro58

It all sounds very confusing and am still wondering why I was assessed (without medical) while waiting for an appeal date?

It's not doing my stress levels much good I must say

Hi shelby,

Please be aware that the scenario on rightsnet is different to your own, in that the claimant mentioned in that situation was appealing because they had failed the assessment.

Not as in your case where you where appealing to go into support.

Sorry if I've caused you any confusion, still an interesting read though.

cheers

You can try and obtain advice from a CAB or WRO. Alternatively, you can find out whether advice is available locally from Community Legal Advice.
