Sent everything I had from the start of his diagnosis from doctors, followed the phrasing on this site, had his care plan from community mental health team updated. Basically gave as clear a picture as possible.

Just sent as much info as possible with the claim form and followed the advice and phrasing on this site. It must have been enough for them to decide without seeing him

Hello Pammyd,

Congratulations, I am was wondering if you can help me as I too have a mental health condition and a physical one. Does your son claim ESA, was he previously on DLA and lastly how long between the initial phone call and getting the positive result did it take?

Thanks

Hi Shaky,
Michael is in the wrag for esa and has been for some time, and no he has never been on DLA, it was in fact his job centre advisor that suggested he apply for pip.
All in all from ringing up for the claim form it took 8 weeks for a decision but his payment was backdated once awarded.
It took me two weeks to fill in the form and gather lots of evidence but was well worth it as the stress of a medical would have been enormous for him.
The guides on this site were invaluable.
Wishing you the best of luck
Pam
