TOPIC: Incapacity

Incapacity 8 years 8 months ago #55271

Hi all

I am currently on Incapacity benefit and was assessed a couple of years ago and found incapable of work and am due to come up for assessment in 2013. Does this mean I will not have to be asessed for ESA until that date?

Hi Plonker

That is when you can be expected to be assessed but there is no guarantee that it will not be sooner or later. Please see the factsheet below.
