    Hi,

    I'm guessing you've recently had a face 2 face assessment? if so they've found you fir for work. Your next step would be to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration (MR) you only have 28 days to get this in. CAB advice people are very good with this sort of thing, maybe give them a ring for an appointment.

    As you've been found fit for work you'll need to now claim JSA. Disability i'm guessing you meaning DLA or PIP? then no this won't stop as 2 completely different benefits.

      I'm sorry but thats the decision. You can ask for the MR like i said but you only have 28 days to do this. If you have CAB near you then please give them a ring tomorrow.

      This isn't unusual. Have you taken a look at the ESA descriptors to see which ones you would score points in? You're evidence needs to back these descriptors up. Please bear in mind that if you ask for the MR most decisions remain the same so you'll more than likely need to take it to Appeal Tribunal.

      You say you can't go out alone but your friend had to leave you at the assessment centre. This more than likely went against you especially as the fire alarm went off and you had to spend more than 1 hour outside. They watch you from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. Good with the MR if you go for this.

      The best thing is to get a copy of the assessment and then you can highlight all the points you feel they made a mistake with. This is what I did and went to tribunal and won. Without seeing anyone. A paper consideration.

      It's ESA you need to ring for a copy of the assessment report. Don't let them fob you off saying it's not them, it is. If you google ESA contact the number will come up.
