TOPIC: Filling in the boxes of the ESA50 Form

Filling in the boxes of the ESA50 Form 1 week 1 day ago #225816

Instead of filling in each box of the ESA50 form can I just only put the words 'Please see separate sheets'? in each box. This would make life a lot easier as I have a lot of information to include.

It is perfectly OK for you to type your answers and attach them as extra pages to the ESA50, just make sure that each page has your full name and NIN at the top and that they are numbered, we recommend "page X of Y" so that it is easy to see if pages are missing. Make sure you clearly mark on the form where your answers are and on the relevant page that you are answering question X.

Attach the pages to the back of the form using a staple or make a hole in the top left corner and use a treasury tag, string or ribbon to the form. The pages need to be easily detached so that they can be scanned by the DWP.
