Some may remember that I recently applied for my ill health retirement pension. I am going thorugh final review based on my sickness and RA. Well I got a letter yesterday. I have been successful and I will recieve tier 2, whcih is the better enhanced tier.
I am so relieved, it means I don't have to worry too much now. It is ATOS who decide, yes I was worried, very worried, but it is based on different criteria than that of ESA. However, I will still apply for ESA, when the time comes and it'll be interesting to see what the outcome is!
For those who are going through or thinking about applying, gather as much evidence as possible. Your consultant report should state that you are permantely incapable of work, NHs job or otherwise.
It is based on blanace of probability, sorry spelling now gone!
