So I've just got comfconfirma that I've failed my ESA assessment... I also claimed housing benefit.. and cold winter payments.... So I'm going to appeal, but I've no idea what to do now.. Do I try JSA? As never had failed benefit assessment... Even though my keyword did most of talking... As I don't understand..... I live in adult services care.... No idea what to do next?

    And don't hesitate to be in touch if there is anything more we might be able to do for you.

    Hi Jontomaz and welcome

    Please get trained advice from your key worker, CAB or similar

    First of all you need to ask for a copy of the assessment report
    Then you need to ask for a mandatory reconsideration

    If you are in a full service area you willhave to claim UC
    if not then you can claim JSA

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    I failed esa and had to make a decision to go on to jsa or have no benefits at all. In the past I got help from cab and then the councils money advice team. As the Jobcentreplus knew me already I was able to go through it with my adviisor. It’s all online now . Good luck.
