TOPIC: IB TO ESA

IB TO ESA 2 years 10 months ago #120755

:) After receiving a form to change from IB to ESA and sending it back in December I have at last received a letter putting me in the support group of ESA without a medical. Without help from Benefits and Work I do not think this would have happened. As time was dragging on I was expecting to receive a call to go to a medical but this did not happen, I couldn't be happier, it is such a weight off my mind.

Hi M,

That is really good news !!!! :cheer:

Thanks for letting us know and for your complimentary comments.

As the recommended period before re-assessment of your SG award (The Prognosis) is not included in The Decision Notice letter, you should be able to obtain the prognosis by ringing the phone number on your letter. ( Or : 0345 608 8545 Press Option 3 for ESA.)

If you have any trouble obtaining the prognosis and/or you want to request the documentation used in coming to the decision, you can issue a SAR.

There is more information regarding this in my post : Here.
