Hi everyone,
 I replied to your answer Poppy regarding UC & Esa, however I can't find the message now....

Since I only get NSESA, would I be entitled to the cost of living payment.? & free dental treatment.
I think some do on ESA & some don't.

Could you possibly explain why some people get the lcrwa payment, & why I don't, please.
Many thanks.

    The reason you can't find it is probably because you asked the question on someone else's thread and are confused where the question is. You can see my latest reply here. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/comment/668871#Comment_668871
    While you're just claiming NsESA you will not be entitled to the CoL payments or free NHS treatment. NsESA isn't means tested as it's a contributions based benefit only.
    Regarding the LCWRA you need to do as i advised on that thread linked above. LCWRA is part of UC and nothing to do with your ESA. Please have a read of the comment on that thread.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    As i advised on your other thread here https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/102984/hi-my-name-is-breacon#latest the only ones that will have access to your information is the scope team. There is an option to put your email address as showing but i wouldn't advise anyone to do that. (yours isn't showing)

    Hi All,
    Could anyone advise me please.
    I have a few days left in which to appeal my pip decision. I will use the telephone no to apply for tribunal, I wanted to ask, the first time I asked for a form MR, I diddnt receive one, but was told they had another team, that would look at it again. Obviously to the same outcome, as no additional info given. I received a random phone call, after been put into SG, ESA. Received standard rate, for daily living. Obviously I was delighted, but I don't agree with what's written on my letter, In terms of what I can do etc.
    Is it worth ringing &  asking them, to look at it again, as the letter says, it's a MR, which confused me, as this must be the second MR I've had. I could try & explain my difficulties a bit better? Or would it be wise to go to Tribunal, it does state on the letter, to either ring for an explanation, or to go to Tribunal, but I have to do this before 1st April. What would your advice be.
    I know I have left it late, but It's something, I'm sick of fighting on with, & I tend to Bury my head.
    Any advice would be appreciated & thank you in advance.

    If you've already requested the MR and had the decision you can't request another. You can now request the Tribunal. You have 13 months to do this but if you're outside the 1 month you must give a reason why you didn't request it within this time. It's very unlikely they will refuse a late appeal. The letter will tell you if it was a MR decision or not.

    Before requesting the Tribunal you need to be sure that it's possible to score more points needed for a higher award. This will help you have a little more understanding of the PIP descriptors. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/personal-independence-payment-assessment-guide-for-assessment-providers/pip-assessment-guide-part-2-the-assessment-criteria

    Or you can get some expert advice from an agency near you.

    If you do go ahead and request the Tribunal you can do it online here. https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal

    Thank you for that Information, would it be reasonable, to say I am unable to perform this task, safely reliably, repeatadly & in a timely manner. 

    Or do they need a full description, so that they themselves draw that conclusion.

    Many thanks.

    It's not going to help you to just say you can't do it because of those reasons. You need to go into a lot more detail than that and tell them the reasons why you can't complete the activity.
    Haven't you been given advice on this in a previous thread? Please have another read through all the advice you've been given.

    I haven't ever told them, nor have I been asked, how my condition affects me, the only ? I've been asked, was about aids....& it does seem, its a tick box excercise.

    This sounds really frustrating and disappointing @Breacon :( How are you feeling about everything at the moment?
