ESA to JSA or UC

Post by dap33 on Thu Mar 15, 2018 12:06 pm

i have a f2f ESA assessment tomorrow, would i be right in thinking if i fail and put in a mandatory reconsideration letter i will automatically be put onto JSA? or will i have to claim UC?

Welcome to the forum dap33.

As far as I know, you will only be able to claim JSA if you are not personally eligible for UC or if you are not in a UC area, or you are in an area where UC is currently suspended.

You can't get Universal Credit at the moment, so i guess it will be JSA then

i dont know what f2f means

however on an esa assessment

have you asked for it to be recorded at your interview

if you have and they dont have the equipment there they will have to cancel themselves this happened to me 3 times so if your lucky and its a medical exam you can prolong the esa claim for a while after 3 i presume your going to have to except an examination and then go through the appeal

it might be earlier all depends if they accept your request or not.

So you can remain on ESA then Wink

If you actually went to the appointment, I hope you got your travel expenses. Not your fault they cancelled.

i'll ring them up tomorrow and ask for a copy of the ESA85 and see what was written.

I'm hoping its accurate as she was an ex colorectal nurse and seemed very sympathetic towards my Crohns Disease diagnosis.

It's the DWP as far as I know, but they won't send out a copy until a decision has been made.

Last time I rang them 2-3 days after I had a WCA and they sent out a copy before I had a decision of the DWP, has this changed in the last 12-18 months?

If you type "copy of ESA85" into Google there's an FOI that says that a copy won't be sent until a decision has been made. Maybe it's changed since you last got one or it could be they are simply being nice sending it out sooner following all the FOIs they got Laughing . All you can do is ring them and see what happens Wink

I had the dreaded brown envelope and i have been moved from the WRAG group to the Support group, i'm guessing this means i passed my WCA but don't want to count my chickens before they hatch
