Petition Scrap the one year time limit on claiming ESA. People with long term chronic illess (including ME/CFS) will suffer financial hardship and stress

More details

This government must scrap the plan to take away ESA after only one year. Each person's livelyhood is already severely restricted, and this potoentially could effect their pension rights in later life.
The unpredicable nature of long term chronic fluctuating conditions such as ME/CFS amongst many others can only be exacerbated by the continuing stress of financial hardship.
We also ask for a comprehensive overhaul of the Welfare Benefit medical assessment process, paying heed to the vast number of complaints already in your posession.
