I am glad someone is writing a book about peoples lives and the benefit trap and the problems decision makers cause. I watched a film called "I Daniel Blake" which high light one mans story and how he suffered, also how he was treated by these so called benefits decision makers.
I myself have just been turned down for contribution based ESA because I have a widows pension. So after working and paying into the system I am cast aside and not able to cover my mortgage payments and keep my house. I am gutted that a benefit can be called contribution based when they take into account my widows pension.
My widows pension is enough to cover my mortgage and another private pension covers some of my bills leaving me nothing for food, clothing, anything socially. I am now in the process of selling my home and moving to a rented flat so I can live as I want to live and not as others say I should be living and I can clear my mortgage and bank loan and any other outstanding payments and be clear of all the pressure .....
