Good that you got ESA (WRAG or Support Group?), hope you also claimed your travel expenses.   >bighugs<
Lots of back-pay to come now - May 2012 to Dec 2013?  >thumbsup< >biggrin<

WRAG, I wasn't expecting Support Group, but I am sort of hovering on the edge of that I think.  It just depends on whether the decision maker has a relative who has arthritis in the lower joints and arms!

DLA was stopped because of the same flawed Atos report that ESA was refused on, yet the Tribunal stuck another 9 points onto it.  I was getting ready for an argument and claim based on quotas, but didn't need it this time.

I was nearly an idiot and forgot the claim form, but the security bloke was kind enough to run up the stairs to get me one.

I phoned the DWP about what I do now I'm on ESA so that I didn't get sanctioned, the thing that now worries me, but they said I got 8-10 weeks of wait now. (Today, I got a request for another sick note from DWP, so that will go in with a copy of the appeal decision.

Now to go phone for PIP.
