Does anyone know what determines if a claimant is called in for an assessment? I am just wondering if it is a computer program and not a person, then again even if it is a person it is rarely personal.

Also the last two times were you put  in WRAG or found fit for work? I am asking because As long as you are at least in WRAG your money wont be stopped and you will still have an income as you go through the appeal process.

The last tribunal I attended, I won and was placed into the Support Group, that's where I currently am.
(it was regulation 35 that they said put me in there at the last tribunal, over 2 and a half yrs ago)

Hi Steve, looks like we are going through this together.  Only you have more practise at it than I have.

oh dear  >crying< Well I truly hope you are handling the stress a LOT better than I am, I'm in a very bad way right now, I keep breaking down and crying buckets in sheer terror and fear or both the coming medical (medical my a***) and the impending doom coming afterwards.

on top of this I still have the flu, so I'm not even eating properly right now.  I was kind of hoping this flu would be nice and fatal as that would solve my stress and worries but alas it seems I'm slowly getting better.   But the worry and stress of the incoming meeting is utterly terrifying.   Yes I've done it 2-3 times before but that doesn't really make it any easier.

I really hope you're in a better place than me mentally and can cope like a normal person would.

"normal"!!  haha.  >biggrin<

I do not suffer from the anxiety that you have Steve.  I am trying to be very matter-of-fact about it.  I am reading up on PIP and seeing what others have said about the process.  I will then go through all my medical letters to see which ones would be useful for them to see.

Please try and stay positive I know it is hard but you will get through it.
I haymy assessment next week on the 25th. I expect to fail like I did the first time I had one and was in pieces but the lovely people on here helped. I went through a lot even having to go on assessment rate again and went through another assessment which after was put in the support group for 2 years.
But I now have another appointment which has been cancelled once and rescheduled ( not by me).
When is your assessment. All you can do is tell the truth take any more evidence with you like me.
Then wait and take a step back deep breath for the next stage. Hopefully it won’t come to that.

I am expecting to fail too, I always do and get 0-5 points, that's happened every time so far and I've had to take it to a tribunal, so I am expecting it to be the same, but even so, the 'so-called' medical is still intensely stressful and anxiety causing and what makes it even worse is that they never see you on time, they always leave you waiting 30-50 mins so they can "monitor" you in the waiting room.

Seriously, you wouldn't treat animals like they treat us.  my appointment is next saturday (seriously, an appointment on sat?!??) and I'm already losing sleep, eating less and worrying myself to death about it. (even though I know its an utter joke and I'll get 0-5 points, and yes I've actually been awarded 0 points before now.   it's insulting)

I wish you guys luck and hope we manage to get through this ordeal somehow.
