Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
In another DWP reply posted it was noted that people with Fit Notes are allowed to move to JSA if they want but i noticed this is not the case.
When i asked the JCP to move to JSA due to the better support for getting into work i was refused.
And even management at DWP head office said no stating that i would not be allowed to switch to JSA until a 3 years fit note was over as it was for the ESA support group.
So here is the question:
What is the system that is used for deciding if someone can move to JSA (As looking at forums it is all over the place and has no sameness.
