Esa

 Just been for my ESA f3f assessment. Been in support group for 4 years. However since Pip raised its ugly head the DWP must of decided to throw the lot at me to fight for once again
Agaun nice assessor, seemed to be aware of epilepsy and ailments. Also that she knew what it was like with sciatica as she too had suffered.
so hopefully things will run smoothly with this. She says 2-4 weeks for decision which I thought was quite quick.
will ring up on Monday for a copy of the report.
Does ESA go on a points system?
last time I was put into work group. I called them and wrote a letter for a reconsideration and they completely overturned the decision in my favour straight away.
so can’t remember any points being scored

    Esa has written to me and cut my benefit. 
    I guess that could mean no need for f2f. How often is it? Had some meeting three years ago to check I was getting what I should be, doesn't sound like esa does it. 
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    Hi whistles

    Why have DWP cut your ESA ?
    You cannot be found fit for work without a f2f

    Ah ok
    So you do have an IR element to your ESA
    Please exuse me today, brain is on go slow

    If I remember right, your area is going UC live soon. If this is the case and you are migrated to UC without PIP dl and therefore no SDP you will not be able to get SDP back in the future. You you only keep the equivalent as a transitional payment if it is in payment at the time
