Hi
I just wanted to say thanks all on this site for your help and support. My son finally heard today in the support group. That is a load off our minds! Thanks again and good luck to everyone waiting.

That is great news jbug! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :) If you wish to know when to expect reassessment you/he can phone DWP and ask for the 'prognosis' which should be on the computer screen, or you can write in and request a copy of the ESA85 (if there was a face2face assessment) or ESA85a (if there was no face2face).

This FAQ is pertinent whether or not there was a face2face

Thank you for the advice.

I also wanted to reassure others who are waiting for ages and finding it distressing, that it has taken just a few days short of 3 months to hear back. Maybe this will give you a big glimmer of hope.
