Dwp say they haven't received the ESA50 form (capability for work) now claim will end, what next
Have received a letter from the dwp stating the end date for the ESA50 form to be returned by is coming up and they haven't received said form, I posted the completed form back to them over a fortnight ago, today is Saturday so can't call them, and this following Monday is also the date the form had to be returned by, Is frustrating when because of my epilepsy, speech difficulties and depression the quality of life said conditions bring, a bleak future is an understatement, have been receiving income support regularly for many years and was receiving DLA along with that a few years ago but didn't reclaim DLA when it ended due to the fact I believed it was to much money and it was creating a suitable lifestyle, is all to easy to fall into the dependent on benefits lifestyle and while this might suit some I aint one of them, struggling to get by gives me motivation to sort it out, to better oneself, admittedly regular seizures have had an impact on this and not receiving any benefit or help/assistance at all then ending it all is looking better & better, a future with homelessness and getting robbed while having a seizure etc is no life at all, when going to jail Im assuming is a better quality of life then the one your living then something is definitely wrong with that, but a roof over your head, gas, electricity 3 square meals already made for you, then there's a gym, classrooms etc no wonder some people prefer it, that's not me unfortunately I just wanted some proof on record that it's the dwps actions that was the final nail in the coffin, our governments actions have culled the weak and the dependent, a cynical person might believe this was the result they wanted, our little island is expanding rapidly, cull the heard, suicide rates have gone through the roof since the benefit changes came into effect, surely there's something the people can do, divided we fall, together we conquer
