TOPIC: Esa Support Group without medical

Esa Support Group without medical 4 years 6 months ago #90642

I was phoned today to tell me Ive been put In the Support Group, thanks to the guides on the site they made filling In the ESA50 form a lot easier.

Before i sent the form In I wrote a lengthy letter to my G.P.
so he was well Informed, and with the form I sent In a doctors report, pictures and other Information.

I was dreading the outcome, can rest easy now :)

That's really good news C. :)

Thanks for letting us all know.

If you wish to find out the expected length of your SG award before you are re-assessed, you should request the ESA85A if you didn't have a face to face assessment, or the ESA85 if you did.

See :

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?

&

ESA Forms

You can request the above over the phone by ringing the office that deals with your ESA, it is advisable to back up any verbal request with a written one.

Hi C,

I have just noticed the title of your thread. :blush:

Therefore as you didn't have a "medical" it would be the ESA85A.

Hi C,

You will receive written notice of your SG award, and this should include a breakdown of your benefit.

However, it will not include the expected length of your award, and is more likely to state that your benefit is payable until November 2012.

This is not the date of your re-assessment, it is used for admin purposes only and it confuses many members.

The only way to find out the exepected length of your award is to request the ESA85A, it will not be sent to you unless you request it.

It may also help you understand how you qualified for entry to the SG.
