TOPIC: Good news and no more benefit stresses for now.

Benefit stress. 10 months 1 week ago #224898

The Decision Notice is normally all there is, please don't be tempted to ask for a further explanation as this is the first stage to an appeal to the Upper Tier Tribunal and the DWP will receive a copy as well.

Benefit stress. 10 months 1 week ago #225225

Hi

I phoned ESA and they said they have things back from Maximus and that it was in the pile waiting for a decision maker to get to it and look over it.

I haven't heard anything from Maximus myself since sending the ESA50. I had no WCA when I first claimed ESA, could it be possible that I won't have a face to face this time or is that wishful thinking?

Thanks

There are considerable delays in the ESA assessment process and you won't hear about whether a face to face is required until your file gets to the top of the pile.

Good news and no more benefit stresses for now. 9 months 2 weeks ago #226686

Hello,

I have now received my ESA reassessment decision. I'm still in the support group and I'm thankful that no face to face was required.

At tribunal I got a 4 year award on my PIP but have been told my ESA award is for 18 months. I'll take that though and at least I can breath easy for a while.

Thanks Gordon, B&W, all!
