Is anybody able to help? I want to take legal action against the DWP.
Long story short. I applied for the LCW element of UC in early 2018. As a vulnerable,disabled.adult who has been signed off as unfit too work by my GP. It is now August and I am still receiving the standard payment minus deductions approx £60 PW. I tried to do the right thing and returned to full time work against doctor's advice and came off ESA (which I was receiving a disability premium which I have lost under UC) Unfortunately, after 3 weeks my health declined and I had to leave my job and sign back on. They would not allow me to make a rapid reclaim to ESA and told me I must go on UC. I have spoken to every person you can imagine and the DWP are still dragging their feet saying one department has my information then it is with the decision maker and round and round they go with no answer as to when a decision on my claim will be made . I have received a "Notice of Possession " on my property ,can not pay daily living costs and visit my food bank weekly. My health has declined . I have been in Hospital overnight through stress and anxiety . I am in debt . It is not that I do not want to pay I can not. On ESA I was still on a low income but my income on UC has been cut to a third of what it was. On ESA I managed just about. I have no where to turn can any one other any advice please.
