TOPIC: ESA ESA50 03/11 form to complete

ESA ESA50 03/11 form to complete 7 years 8 months ago #78659

I have today received yet another ESA50 form to complete and would like to know if any one else had the same letter. I was awarded ESA and put into the WRAG in April 2011 after taking the original decision to appeal. This was less than a year ago and I now have to complete the Limited Capability for work questionnaire again. Is this the norm? I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and have had to go to pain management and had Lidocaine infusion to try to ease the chronic pain that I suffer 24/7 daily. I have to fill out the form which is 21 pages long again and am dreading having to go through the whole process again. :angry:

Hi F,

This happens all the time regarding people being reassessed, it is an ongoing process unfortunately.

Unlike DLA, there are no indefinate awards.

There are no exemptions from reassessment as there was with IB, in being PCA exempt.

See :

How often will I be reviewed

This why it helps if you can use the Pdf version ESA50, as here :

Use Of The Interactive PDF Version Of The ESA50 Questionnaire

After completion, printing off and posting, you are left with an exact copy on your P.C.

This can be kept for future reassessments, and ammended, edited, and updated.

Obviously one would have to be sure that the current version of the ESA50 ( ESA50 03/11) hadn't been revised.

Hi F,

I should of added that you can use our ESA Guides to fill in the ESA50, see here :

ESA Guides

Have a good read of the relevant pages from the list of links in our FAQ's also, here :

Maybe when you do the next one copy off a few hundred and keep sending in the same ones? Intelligence is certainly not theirs is it?
