Hi, I had a letter to attend a ftf medical for my ESA, then got a letter telling me they had cancelled it. I called to ask why, and tbh the guy I spoke to was really unhelpful, however I called again today and the lady ( who was very nice) advised me that with the proof, and docs report I sent in, they were happy to keep me in the support group, and I wont be contacted til 2020. Great news as these things as you all know cause no end of stress for weeks beforehand! What I would like advice on is what I should do about PIP, I saw them last year, and was awarded standard rate for blth personal & mobility, ( I didnt agree with the mobility part, as I was just short of points needed, and the person who done the exam said I could walk further than I can, but I was scared to appeal, BUT I am now really struggling as my condition is even worse now, and I feel I need help with the mobility side of things, I did an online assessment & it states I do qualify for the higher rate mobility, but is it worth applying ( or is it too soon after last year?) If ESA ( I know they are different benefits) accept I am in need of the support group, and know that my illness wont get better ( I wish!) but can only get worse, surely the same evidense would be proof to the PIP, any advice would be gratefully received.
