ESA appeal query
I wonder if anyone can help me please.
I receive ESA because I suffer from anxiety and depression. Last year I had my ESA turned down so I followed the procedure, mandatory reconsideration and then appeal. While I was appealing they paid me ESA work focused group rate, then called me in for another assessment. I failed the second assessment, so we put in another reconsideration letter.
I won my appeal and I have been waiting for my ESA to be reinstated, then today I get a letter saying my mandatory reconsideration for the second assessment has been turned down.
I am very confused. What does this mean? Does the appeal decision override the second mandatory reconsideration, or do I have to appeal again?
