    Hi,

    No wonder your stress levels are getting higher. What a carry on.  Sounds like a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. If you hadn't gone through this farce yourself you probably would not believe it could happen in this day & age.  You will more than likely be transferred to another department who in turn will give you a different phone number to phone, who in turn will give you yet another phone number. In the end you will be back where you started after spending best part of the day being passed from pillar to post. No communication between departments. So frustrating & a waste of time.  Good luck when you phone. Always ask the name of the person you are talking to & make a note of it. wink

      You have done nothing wrong.  It is the total incompetence of the DWP.  I hope you get it sorted tomorrow.  Don't forget your pen & paper & ask everyone's name you talk to. Good luck.  smile

    I've had the same with ESA They told me my Incapacity had been changed to ESA and I got a letter saying it was granted till Nov 2017. At the same time I received the 20 odd page to apply for ESA. Rang them and they said you shouldn't have got that letter and you need to fill the form in. If this was a business they be filing for bankcrupcy, totally no joined up thinking which in the end is causing a lot of unessesary stress and worry. 300 people every week  are appealing and it's costing the tax payer £1 million pound a week. You would be out of business if it was a company but it's the government saving money by employing a private company ATOS is the very same private country who were paid millions to put people back to work they had millions and after 18 months they never found 1 person a job.so lets them to stick it to disabled people. look just announced today that there is an increase in the number of billionaires.
