ESA award DURATION? was created by ritz
Hi, I received my decision letter and have been put into the support group with the help of these guides, so many thanks for that.

It doesnt state when my award will end.

Does anyone know the duration of the award in support group? I am sure I have had award letters in the past that stipulated an end date.

Many thanks

Hi ritzy

That really is terrific news, congratulations and well done.

ESA is an indefinite award with scheduled reassessment based on the Prognosis Date completed by the assessor in their report, so your existing ESA award continues in payment until a new Decision is made.

ESA assessments can be anywhere from 3 months to two years for the WRAG and three years for the Support Group, you can find out when you are likely to be reassessed by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim, the information will be on your computer record, or requesting a copy of the assessment report.
