I've been sanctioned, what do I do?
I have bpd and autism and on jsa but they say I should be on a different benefit to jsa as I cannot look for work the jobcentre said I should be on esa and have also sanctioned me just because I was truthful with the work coach and said I'm probably not able to work and they obviously twisted it and said I hadn't been looking for work even though I have been actively seeking employment as they say in order to receive my stupid jsa. Really hate the benefits system and got worse with UC if that's humanely possible!!! Can you tell me what to send it so they can undo the sanction or should I take everything to the nasty jobcentre to scan to dwp head office or whoever deals with it all??? Appeal it?? Need advice as I have never ever been sanctioned before. Also if they are say claim esa that is not possible as UC has replaced it as I live in a full UC area so would I have to be forced onto UC and lose my severe disability premium or would I get protection or top up amount and be placed in the limited capability group in UC and get the same amount or lose it!?????????? Such confusion. What a nightmare for disabled people who cannot work and are on jsa or forced onto UC or even into full toe work which then makes their illnesses worse!
