Sheila Gilmore

That this House notes that at present people who apply for employment and support allowance (ESA) and are declared fit for work can ask for this decision to be reconsidered prior to lodging a formal appeal; further notes that at present people can continue to receive ESA at the assessment rate during this period; welcomes the introduction of reconsideration in all cases as of 28 October 2013; expresses concern that people will no longer be able to claim ESA during this period; further expresses concern that their only alternative will be to apply for jobseeker’s allowance (JSA), for which being fit for work is a condition of receipt; further notes that since October 2008 four in 10 appeals have been successful; fears that in future people who are awarded ESA on appeal will be ineligible for both ESA or JSA during reconsideration; believes that the Government has a duty to support those who cannot support themselves through no fault of their own; and calls on Ministers to bring forward legislative proposals to ensure that ESA claimants can continue to receive the benefit at the assessment rate during this period.

    Pleased to meet you! My name is Kathrine Whitton. Supervising has been my profession for some time and the
    salary has been really fulfilling. It’s not a common thing but what
    I like doing is to bake but I can’t make it my profession really.
    Virgin Islands has always been his living place.
    I am running and maintaining a blog here: http://hueeuheuheuheuh.com/

    Then purchase your eBook for $10 and advertise for free.
    Every single second your internet site is
    offline could be cash lost. It’s a chain reaction of money pouring in if you will things right.
