Hi 3 yrs ago I won my Appeal for ESA. I have now lost my ESA due to an Atos medical. I am appealing with the help of CAB. been through the MR with no change, and now received my letter from the Court. Cab advised me to claim Jobseekers during this time, which I am. I have to look for work within my limitations. I have a work coach. who thinks I can do the work I did 8/9 yrs ago, which I can't. I live in fear of being sanctioned. I was told by CAB that I could take my letter to the job centre and ask for the reduced rate of ESA while awaiting my tribunal. My work coach, during an appointment mentioned that I had to remain on job seekers and because I had appealed before, I have to stay on job seekers. When asked cab again they said I could. Is there anyone that knows for sure, As last time I went the road of no money for 6 months till the appeal was heard. Advice much appreciated thank you, plus if I can go on reduced ESA when can I take my letter from the court into the job centre.
