I got taken off ESA in may 2019 after failing to attend an appointment as I had to get off the bus due to an anxiety attack. I then started claiming universal credit. I appealed this and have just had a decision notice from first tier tribunal saying decision allowed. Does this mean I have won and will I get some money paid to me?

    Hello there @AnnemD

    Welcome to the community, this is a very supportive and welcoming place so I'm sure you'll enjoy getting involved. 

    We have many categories which you can view here, including some relating to benefits which you might be interested in reading, and we also have a virtual coffee lounge where we do things like play games and talk about general subjects. Please feel free to get involved and ask any questions if you need help navigating the site.

    I have moved your discussion over to our benefits and financial support category, I'm sorry to hear of what you were put through. I would assume that decision allowed means you have won, but I'm not certain about that so hopefully another member will be able to clarify.
