The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has been forced to release updated Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) mortality statistics, in response to a Freedom of Information request from disability campaigner Gail Ward.

The shocking statistics reveal that 111,450 ESA claims were closed following the death of claimants between March 2014 to February 2017.

Since being moved from Support to Wrag in January I have not had one single contact from DWP about the state of my health. I have actually had a couple of minor relapses and put my (recurring) back problem out just before my last appt at the JC. I mentioned all this to my advisor.

Five years ago I was at the point were I thought I was going to die quite soon and it was difficult to get anybody at jobcentreplus to take my situation seriously - one advisor at CAB had got to the point where every time he rang them up he would say along the lines 'got Mr, Mrs X here, they're ready to end it all...' in my case when I next spoke to someone from DWP they seemed to be making fun out of this. I basically asked that advisor if that is what he has to do just to get their attention and he confirmed this is the general impression he got from dealing with them.

I also found that when making complaints that the wheels move very slowly indeed regardless of how serious a situation you might be in due to a mistake they have made in spite of your condition being known to them. One office might answer the complaint within the alotted time but rarely satisfactorily and thus you are forced to escalate and again...these can go on for a matter of years altogether. The whole situation has been stage managed to instill suffering and fear.

Any professional body with the delays, backlogs etc that they are facing would surely be acting in their own interest to simply leave the decision at the level of a GP or specialist but they are happy to waste tax payers' money playing these sick games with peoples' lives and seemingly not caring one bit about the mountain of bodies piling up. Having said that, the absence of figures from the fit for work decisions is rather chilling.

Similar to the idea of Heaven & Hell being a reality or not, if Karma exists as a force then this lot might not be suffering because their punishment awaits them in the next life.

I sympathise Verc. I meet a work coach periodically as I`m in the WRAG group. Sometimes every few months, but I was left alone for nearly six months prior to my meet up last week, although that didn`t prevent me from anxiously looking for the post person each day fearing the brown envelope drop. As someone I know once said, it`s like getting a parcel bomb through the post. It can virtually feel like that even though that sounds a bit radical, it can mean a cut off from the lifeline we rely on if we took a bad turn and couldn`t notify anyone. Money stopped- Reason - Didn`t bother turning up. That`s the reality.


CAB can be brilliant when appealing a fit for work decision. I had to appeal my ESA the last time and I fully expect the same again, although this time I will be making sure I get their attention by using the `exceptional risk` factors and detailing more on the emphasis of why I still meet the descriptors I was awarded and supplying them with my Tribunal decision from the last time just to rub it in.
