Yet another WCA
I was already on ESA/WRAG when In January I received and returned a health questionnaire for which I was asked to attend a WCA appointment in February.
I then received a letter from DWP on Saturday 30th March informing me that, as a result of the WC, my ESA had been stopped from Friday 29th March and declared me fit for work and should get a job or claim UC, despite still having the same condition.
I made a claim for UC, submitting fit-notes, and on 10th April CAB initiated a 'mandatory reconsideration' for me warning that it could be a long process and could be even longer if taken to tribunal (I have yet to hear anything back).
Today I received a pdf document, in my UC journal, with the heading:
"Your Universal Credit claim
We need to find out more about your health condition"... informing me that I'll receive another health questionnaire and possibly have to attend another WCA.
Is this normal practice?
P.S. wasn't sure whether to post this under ESA or UC.
