Claimant Was Accused Of Making Dead Son Up

June 17, 2019

This is quite possibly the worst assessment story I have heard so far. And readers, I’ve heard a lot of assessment stories! It deserves to be published as a post of its own and shared far and wide. It was left as a comment on this site over the weekend. We are not linking back to the post it was left on, so that our reader can remain anonymous.

I went for an esa assessment and was accused of making my dead son up as it was mot in my old g.p who was struck off three years prior. They asked if I was sure about my son dying. They did not care about my illnesses, more concerned with who lives with me then when I mentioned my other adult son Luke, she replied with, is this the ill son Tha you claim is dead. I was upset and crying by this point. I was then asked to crouch down I said I can’t my legs will not support me and its too painful. They put down I refused to take part. By the end of two hours of interrogation I was physically upset and crying not only because of what they kept saying but also because I was in pain. But if you leave they say you do not comply. I was shaking when I left and the assessor looked at me like I was something on her shoe and was unmoved by my upset state. My son died when he was eleven years old and you never get over the loss of a child and to be accused of making it up is unnecessary cruelty and purposely done to upset me. And throughout the whole assessment she kept alluding to me pretending my other ill son is the one im actually claiming to be dead when he is alive. What does any of my sons living or deceased have to do with a medical assessment anyway. I was not claiming for esa because of emotional state or depression. I have ehlers danlos, a collagen affected genetic disorder. Plus I have scar tissue problems, chronic fatigue, constant pain, I have scar tissue pain also from a major surgery, I haemorrhage and carry transexamic tablets plus I have multiple allergies, diabetes, back pain and bronchial asthma. Apparently I am making all this up too. As they stopped my esa and said I’m fit for work.

    I’ve read a lot of horror stories about esa and pip but this has got to be the worst. My heart goes out to this woman – I lost a son too and if anyone said this to me, it would break me. I’d really like to offer your reader some support, so could you forward my email address, please? We have the same impairment as well.

    There is absolutely no excuse for this.

    The assessor in question should be sacked immediately.

      She got paid a bonus. For finding a means of stealing this woman’s payment.
