TOPIC: WRAG Action Plan while waiting appeal

WRAG Action Plan while waiting appeal 5 years 11 months ago #73257

I believe that there is an action plan drawn up by the advisers when you go to a work-focussed interview, which you have to agree to. What would be best for me to do as I am currently awaiting contact from DWP as to whether I will got to an appeal regarding my need to be in the support group and not WRAG? If they try to get me to agree to anything, this would surely effect my appeal and if I don't agree to the action plan will they see it as me being unreasonable? Catch 22....lots of rocks and hard places. :(

Hi TCP,

As I am sure you will understand it is not possible to give a definitive answer here.

I would certainly make the Job Centre Plus WFI person aware of your limitations, and that you are in fact appealing to go into SG.

As you know WFI's are mandatory, however you could request a deferment, but again they do not have to comply with your request.

See DM Guide on WFI's here. 53021 onwards :

webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20100...gov.uk/docs/ch53.pdf

They do have to give you 7 days notice for a WFI appointment.

cheers

Thanks, Bro58. I'll see how I feel. I just don't want to get rail-roaded into something when it's clear that I am too unwell to work. I'm already going to face an appeal without support, as my doctor will only write to the DWP and not give me a letter. I can't get to the local CAB and wait outside in the queue and then wait for hours until I can be dealt with. It's all too much when you are in great pain and barely leave the house.

Thanks for your help ;)

some CABs offer appointments if you telephone them, but getting them to answer the phone is another thing.

I was able to get an appointment with my CAB by e-mailing them first. Is this option available to you?
