Hi Janet, congratulations! :)

Re:ESA 6 years 7 months ago #74264


First, please try and start a new thread for your questions, I only spotted your post by accident when going back through previous posts.

It sounds like you are being asked to participate in a Work Focussed Interview.

These are mandatory for members of the WRAG, and a failure to participate can affect your benefit payments.

I'm afraid there is little advice I can offer with regard to the WFI, there is a guide on the following link that explains your responsibilities in more detail.


You don't say what the timescales are since the Decision to place you in the WRAG, but our normal advice is to lodge an appeal using a GL24.

With regard your existing Reconsideration, you can escalate the problem to the Customer Services manager, althoug this may require a cll back by the DWP.

Good luck.
