TOPIC: ESA award won, with no assessment!.

ESA award won, with no assessment!. 1 year 5 months ago #141706

After 18 years diagnosed with MS, I had to give up my work as I could no longer cope physically or mentally. I was DREADING applying for ESA, after all the horror stories of waiting times, and assessments, but thanks to Benefits and Work, it was much less stressful than I thought. I followed the guides to a t, and included as much supporting evidence as I could lay my hands on. What a surprise!!. . . .I had prepared myself for a fight, but my claim was sorted within eight weeks and I was put straight into the support group with no assessment!!. I cannot thank Benefits and Work enough for their invaluable help, and urge anyone who is worried like me to use the guides as you work through the ESA 50 form including anything that you struggle with in day to day life, no matter how small and trivial you think it is. :)
