Health assessor thinks I'm fit for work despite medical letters
Having problems with ESA so I am quite interested in reading this. Having worked for over 40 years the last 5 with my condition not being diagnosed was a struggle but now having finally got there my consultant has said in both letter and verbally that I am physically and mentally incapable of work , Drs notes back this up.I provide these to the DWP all the time but their Health Assessor(HA) seems to think I am 'fit for work'. Don't actually know what qualifications this HA has in neurological cases -Im not happy due to go for another one on 6th April as they have already reduced my money to £49.80 per week as I get a massive pension of £86 pm so I am supposed to be able to live on less than £300 pm , pay bills and buy food -I don't have extravagant tastes (just as well) but I do have bills that have to be paid and food to live- its worse than the age I grew up in. Any advice off anyone would be a big help as I see people who have never worked a day in their life bleeding the system whilst genuine people seem to get nothing - is this because we are too naïve???
