ESA amendments
Wed 02-Jun-10 04:12 PM

Latest issue of the Adviser has a very useful piece by Kate Fincham about the mess surrounding ESA appeals. However it relies mainly on what are said to be proposed amendments effective 28.6.10, in the Social Security (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regs 2010.

I can find no trace of these amending regulations. Does anyone else know anything about this?

maybe i am wrong but is one of those amendments suggesting that the dwp need to wait 6 weeks after a clients sick note expiring before stopping their benefit?
