The liklihood is that you will receive an ESA50 questionaire to complete, and after returning it, will be required to attend a medical.

There are some exceptions to this process, if you want more information then please read the Understanding ESA Guide (03/11) in the Members area.

It is the first guide found in the ESA resources section, which can be accessed HERE.

The guides are in the Members area.

Select the "Help for Claimants" link in the orange box on the left of the page.

Scroll down the new page to "Employment & Support claims and appeals" link and selct it.

The ESA guides will then be listed, you want the ones at the top of the page as these are for the test.

Hope this helps.
