I don't understand my letter from DWP



I had my assessment a couple of months ago. Yesterday I got a letter
and now today another letter. I don't really understand what they
mean. I was thinking that I might be removed from Incapacity Benefit
and have to apply for Job Seekers Allowance. That hasn't happened.

The first letter says I will be put into a 'work related activity
group'. Looking at the letter it seems that it would have been better
for me if they had put me in a 'support group'. Should I appeal
against their decision? How do I do that? Should I try and get a copy
of the notes of the assessment so that I can understand why I didn't
get many points? Can you direct me to a web site that gives details
about this?

I have tried searching on the internet for information but I haven't
found a site yet that can give me the information I need. I know this
sounds very basic, but I am sure there are a lot of people like me who
are in the same situation as me and have difficulty comprehending how
the system works.

Have you spoken to the DSS? Or better still give the department of work and pension a ring to get further explanation.
