failed my ESA assessment for the 2nd time
good morning all, been on incapacity benefit now for 20 years, making this year my 5th assessment, failed one in the past by one point, this year a few days ago i had my reply and part assessment decision in writing on the 15th of April, which i scored 0 points, seems the nurse either can't read or doesn't understand the 80 pages of hospital and doctors and consultants notes, even the pretty ones in color showing scans and stuff, aged 52 now i do wonder if it's all worth it, been to see CAB and my local job centre, which said if i wish to sign on, as from the 15th of April i have no income what so ever, as ESA has been stopped, so no benefit and no way of claiming anything else either it seems, as the job centre says while i can appeal and have sent in the Mandatory reconsideration PDF, it seems 80% is the target for failure, so it's almost a wait before a no comes my way and then back again to Tribunal, my 2nd one in 20 years, won one, so hay ho, maybe again, as they read, nurse at assessment doesn't, it's that simple.
