TOPIC: Under Investigation? - or am I getting paranoid ..

Under Investigation? - or am I getting paranoid .. 5 years 11 months ago #72744

I have been on IB for over 11 years ..... I have had only one Work Capability Assessment - about 10 years ago - no problem.

After the last 'review' via an IB50 I was advised my next review was 26/07/2011. I've heard nothing and am still receiving IB.

I am wondering if it is 'normal' to hear nothing ... or is this an indication that something else is going on....?

Can anyone report anything similar - thanks....

All IB claimants are being transferred to ESA, the process started this April and is due to finish in April 2014.

See the following FAQs for more information.

Who will be transferred?

When will I be transferred?

What will I be transferred to?

we might both be under investigation!!.... :o( - and no matter how genuine our claims - the 'Daily Mail' will make every effort to make all claimants appear fraudulent...

There are several of us at the pain clinic I attend who have yet to be migrated from IB to ESA.

Most of us have IB review dates prior to April 2011 and many back in late 2010. I know of one person who should have been reviewed from Jan 2010.
