After assessement

I am getting ESA from last 3 years and PIP from 9/01/2017 through tribunal and for ESA my assessment was in early December 2018 and i went to that assessment then they wrote me again after 10 days that you didnt attend the assessment i called assessment centre and they said you did attend but we lost the record on our computer so you need to attend again then on this community some one guide me to ring DWP and make a complaint which i did and they said decision maker will call you then i received a call from DWP and she said that assessor who did my assessment was not qualified so you need to go for another assessment and a qualified doctor will assess you when i went to 2nd assessment there was no qualified doctor there was again a nurse and i have so many issues with my health she wrote in my assessment report that i am fit to work which is 110% lie.
I had a heart heart attack,I am diabetic,i have atharits on my neck i have anxiety and depression,i have bladder problem,i have eisedity problem,i have prostate cancer my finger gets jam lot of other issues and that qualified nurse says i am fit for work in her assessment how many medications i am taking it doesnt mean anything to them today i received a call from DWP and they said we cant pay you ESA till the decision is not made after my assessment they have not paid me from last 3 weeks how do i survive and where i should go please help me they have gone crazy and mad

    Hi,

    I'm assuming you've been found fit for work and the call you received today was to tell you the decision and to say your payments have now stopped, is this correct?

    Sorry, i don't understand. If a decision hasn't been made then why have your payments stopped?

    Hi Paul if decision not made they pay you till then I’m waiting my outcome but still getting paid 
  • paul93paul93 Member Posts: 69 Connected
    They have no right to stop my payment unless they provide me something in writing which they didnt

  • Dotty123Dotty123 Member Posts: 492 Pioneering

    Please do if you can

    If a decision hasn't been made then payments will continue. Are you sure you weren't told you've been found fit for work during the phone call today? In your post above you said you've been found fit for work, how do you know this?

    They don't always ring you, i've never been rang after an ESA assessment. I've come to the conclusion that if they call you after an ESA assessment then it's more than likely bad news. If they do ring you then it depends what number they have down for you.

    I'm plodding along, thank you. Hope you're as well as you can be!?

    It was change in circumstances which i told them by phone i went to India with my relation and got married because alone living here was very difficult for me so they said when your partner will arive here inform us which i did but they couldnt understand her visa because i am German and my partner has the same right as me to live here and for the public funds then DWP lady said everything is ok with your partner but we need to wait for your medical assessment and for the decision from the decision maker and we cant pay you

    Oh i see. I'm afraid i have no idea why they have stopped your payments in this case. Maybe a visit to your local advice agency for expert advice is a good idea.

    What type of advice agency
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    CAB, welfare rights or a law centre. Sorry but i really don't understand stand why your payments have been stopped when no decision's been made yet. The only thing i can say is that they've stopped payment because of your change of circumstances as you're now living with your partner.

    But it is the truth what i told them i cant hide anything from them but its not fare that they can stop my payment
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    There must be a another reason why they've stopped your benefits because a decision hasn't been made on your assessment yet. You'll either need to ring ESA and ask them why your money has been stopped or speak to an advice agency near you for further advice. This link will help you to find what's available for advice in your area. https://advicelocal.uk/

    Good luck.
