I applied for Esa on the 29th July last year and to date have received no money not even the assesment rate, went to tribunal 2 months ago which was adjourned until today, have just got back and have been awarded 18 points and placed in the work related group to say im happy is an understament. Looking forward to having the money paid back does anyone know how long they usually take and should i contact them today to give them my new bank details? x

Hello Lollyred1

Congratulations. I was wondering how you were getting on and am so pleased you have got what you deserve. It gives me hope as I also have ME and am awaiting the migration to ESA with trepidation.
Hope you can chill for a bit and enjoy your success.
Best wishes
Sue

How come you didn't get any money for over a year? Did you chase them up and if you did what did they say? What on earth did you live on?
