Thank you Thank you and I Thank you
To all the Mods and the members that also helped me along the way when I was filling in my ESA transfer form back in August.
I used the online form and spent a few days going over it using the guides. I them took it to a Benefit form service that helps you to fill it in. To be honest they only changed a couple of things and that was to take things out not to add them in.
I feel my success is down to BW and the supportive letter from my GP.
Muchly relieved and thankful

Hello again,
Just to update I, as everyone else seems to find do not have an award length on my letter.
I have rang my local DWP office and they have no idea how long it is for?? she has told me the computers have not been updated. I am in blissful ignorance at the moment and hoping for the maximum length of time. They had never heard of an ESA85A but told me they would find out what it is and get it printed out for me and sent out in the next 10 days haha But they were very nice..
Once again cannot say it enough
Thank you

Hi

Congratulations, I had the same issue last year when I was trying to find out my length of award. The call centre staff did not know what I was talking about. I put my request in writing and got my ESA85A in a short space of time. It might be better to write, not phone.

I also heard I got into the SG recently, this time for 2 years. All thanks to this site and the help of the wonderful mods so I hope those still waiting, and particularly those with similar problems to FMS or with fluctuating conditions will take heart.

Hi MCW and mods
Thanks for the information and congratulations to you too.
I received my ESA85A today and I have been given 2 years as well. It was quick coming 3 days after I phoned.
Totally agree with your comments about the mods and hope the news gives hope to others waiting.
