Well. I thought id try posting again.
Dad hasn't passed the medical for ESA. Expecting paperwork in the mail. This means his benefits will stop apparently....erm....when did they start? We havent seen a penny.
The woman on the end of the phone told dad she was putting an appeal form in the post and he asked what would happen if he didnt want to appeal. She said everyone normally does it, but he was adamant. She wouldn't take no for an answer and the form is in the post. So basically, we were pennyless, we are pennyless and we will be pennyless. Fab
We have decided to take matters into our own hands and maybe try and get him a forgiving job for the bad days, maybe security or factory worker but he hasnt got a car at the mo so thats restricted. May have to hire him a car or something if its essential.
So the next bit made me laugh. Lets phone the jobcentre now and ask for help with finding a job he may be able to do, ya know use the computers and advice....cos surely being a job centre that is all available.....we can't make an appointment for help until we are applying for job seekers allowance!!!!
Are these so called help centres sponsered to get people to fill out as much paperwork as possible? Is it an inside sweepstake on who strings someone along for the longest because I seriously have no faith in this system now whatsoever. At least ive found out now so I can hopefully save for my later years!....oh wait, i can't save cos im on a low wage income and caring for my father!
Grrrrr. I seriously dont know who to turn to now and theres so much other stuff going on I dont know where to consider starting.
Hope you are all having a better time with it than I am.
