Incapacity Benefit

All about money
As you all know - I filled in the form using worse case scenarios, wrote down if there wasnt a suitable tick box ( no, there wasnt a box marked "never" when asking how often he can go out alone, so I wrote NEVER under all the boxes).
He was assessed as capable of work - even though the his work assessor at the job centre stated that there was no work that he could do and it was pointless going on any courses - and we are having to appeal. ATM we are still trying to gather all the evidence. Its been made harder as he has missed a few of his appointments due to having had a big fit and not been capable of even getting out of bed.

Its all a nightmare
Thank you Myrtle. That is it.

Is it possible that different offices have a different outlook on the way they handle claims?xx
Just been looking at a sample of that form online and wow its so complicated isnt it.Sure gunna need to enlist help with that one from such as Physiotherapy.DN's GP Social worker etc.Maybe a Doctors note would help too.I wonder if that idiot Cameron knows just how much hastle hes giving folks.

I agree its bloody disgraceful.Theres no way that woman could work at any job and Trish is in the same boat shed need a carer there all the time.The DWP are a bunch of heartless and mindless A**h***es they need to get a life

Good luck with the appeal Crocus
Well the dreaded form from the Atos heathcare arrived yesterday.Oh my god the stupid questions they ask etc is unbelievable.The boss carer says she will take a look at it on Sunday and help us fill it in.Its so bliddy complicated gotta create the right picture so to speak.They may have to see her on a one to one basis as well to assess her.I think if they get themselves to specsavers that they will be able to clearly see that shes unable to work.Watch this space.
