I just had a phone call from DWP saying I am no longer entitled to ESA no more after being in the support group since changing over from income support he said my money stops from today. I am in total shock and not sure what to do how am I going to live and pay the bills??. Please can someone give me advice?

Is there a backstory? It does not sound normal? Did you break the rules?

If desperate claim JSA.

Have they told you what they have based this decision on? I would ring back up and ask if not. have you been reassessed recently?

You need to go through the appeal process - if you need ESA. I understand that you can claim assessment rate ESA whilst you wait for a decision.

I have asked for report from f2f so I can do a MR then if that fails go to appeal.

Hi Yellows,
So sorry this has happened to you, glad your going for a mandatory reconsideration.
The citizens advice could help you.
Do you have a supportive GP mine wrote me a letter and I got put in the support group.
Hope you get it back quickly.
Take care

Since austerity the DWP have been trying to drop as many people as possible.. The changes in the benefits system was nothing but them redrawing the lines so all kinds of people no longer qualify... what's your diag-nonsense ?
