ESA claimants mind a new trick out of the DWP’s hat!

If you have worsened after failing an ESA test and claim ESA again, they can now make a new ‘assessment’ just a couple of days after your phone claim, without waiting for your new evidence.

They say they can ‘assess’ you on the basis of the previous evidence. They say that this counts as a new full Work Capability Assessment. Unfortunately, a judge has recently decided that they can do it, oh dear.

This means that you cannot claim ESA again because it is unlikely you worsen again in a few day. You will also have problem with claiming JSA. Since you were not paid a penny of ESA after your second claim the Jobcentre telephonists will tell you that you are not allowed to claim JSA and will direct you to Universal Credit.

Let’s admit, this is diabolical.
