TOPIC: Esa assessment

Esa assessment 2 months 1 week ago #226190

I have my assessment again in 2 weeks, i have a spinal physical disability so i get high pip and always in support group as can’t walk much and can’t use wheelchair without help. So these assessments have been pointless as i get in the support group on least 2 or 3 of the questions.

My question is i know they changed the fact that you have to have these if your disability is not going to improve etc, i think it came in just weeks after my last one. I want to know if i have to ask them about this or what? As it’s just a pain to do them physically and so stressful, plus it’s degrading. I have had 3 assessments in 18 months now.

You will need to show that you meet the criteria to be exempted from further assessment

Hi. Yes I do meet that. So do I have to mention that to them?
