TOPIC: Esa Support Group without medical

Esa Support Group without medical 3 years 9 months ago #105295

I applied for ESA 12 weeks ago for the first time and found your guides invaluable, explaining the process and the need for evidence. Today I've received a letter from DWP to say I am in the Support Group without having to attend a medical. I first found your site when I applied for DLA a year ago and had to appeal (successfully). I can't thank you enough for seeing me through this difficult time.

Hi MBS, that is great news! Thank you for letting us know, and for your kind words about this site :)

You can get an idea of when to expect reassessment by phoning DWP and asking for the 'prognosis' and/or you can write and ask for a copy of the ESA85a. If you want a copy of all the paperwork assosiated with this claim you can make a 'Subject access request' (SAR) to DWP.
