I don't post often but I browse through from time to time and it's great to see some old faces here and especially sounding as well as they can be
Some guys were talking last week at a social event I went to and one of them had just been reviewed on his DSP and was being forced to look for work. he has been on the DSP for a long time, is aged around 53 or so. I actually advised him to google this board but he doesn't seem to have joined, from what I have seen. I don't know his full name so I can't dig much deeper. But he has un-nerved me and I thought rather than stew on the subject and worry more and more, I would come here and ask because I know in here I will get factual answers based on experiences and proven cases.
I am now age 57 and I was granted DSP in March 2017, only 18 months ago. I went through the normal procedures and their Doctor did his examination and I was found Manifestly qualified (20 points) for lower back injury. Also 10 points @ 2 x 5 for other complaints. Ability to work less than 5hrs pwk if i recall correctly. Since then I have developed a Cardiac problem and that's not even taken into account at this stage.
My question is "When would I be looking at being reviewed". These people were saying so & so got reviewed and this happened and that happened but it was all hearsay, I know half was crap but it got in my mind and has bugged me alll week. I don't need the worry but I just can't stop worrying.
When do you estimate a review would be possible? I'm guessing at it being at least 5 years after being granted, especially at my age. certainly not the near future and I have only been on the DSP 18 months. Going back to Newstart would destroy us financially and times are incredibly hard now. So if you can just answer the question as honestly as you can, I understand it is only a "guesstimate".... but at least I may be able to cease worrying for a while.
