Hello I am looking for some help re my husbands ill health application with the teacher pension agency. Without going into lots of details this has been a complete nightmare and has gone on for now around 18 months. He applied for a tier one application, they accepted he was too ill to go back to teaching, the dr from Atos actually stated this. They turned it down on the grounds it was an out of service application. It was not and we sent back an appeal on this basis. They accepted this Anyway to cut a long story short today we went on the website and it finally says case finished. The pension advisor sent a secure e mail to my husband saying he will receive a letter telling him whether it was successful or not by tomorrow. We now have another case opened up saying "request for recycling declaration"...Please I am desperate to know is this a further excuse from them? What does it mean? After 18 months my husbands ill health has definately been exacerbated by the tpa, his lea, and even his old school. If anyone can shed some life on this I would be soooooo grateful. Thankyou.
