ESA RE ASSESSMENT 4 months 1 week ago #227570

I was put in the ESA Support Group almost 1 year ago. I have been sent another ESA 50 I was to be reviewed. Since date of last review I am worse my medication for depression and anxiety has increased to the highest level possible. I also will not go out on my own. do not trust people. All this information has been sent with form. I was just wondering could you advice will I be called for a medical or will the evidence sent be enough. Print out from doctor re medication has been provided along with all of the above information.
I know that I am not fit for work. Any advice would be appreciated.

ESA RE ASSESSMENT 4 months 1 week ago #227588


I've moved your post to its own topic, we ask members not to post their questions in other member's topics as it can lead to the wrong advice being given or taken. Especially when they are [ostinh about a different benefit.

I can't give you a definitive answer, Paper Based Reviews for ESA are quite rare, it will depend on how you have explained your problems in relation to the ESA activities and whether you testimony is supported by up to date evidence.

There are currently long delays in the ESA assessment system so it could be many months before you hear whether a face to face assessment will be required.
