TOPIC: ESA WCA Re-Assessment Deferred

ESA WCA Re-Assessment Deferred 5 days 22 hours ago #237228

Hi

I just wanted to share my information that I rang DWP yesterday asking about my next ESA WCA. It was due next month. They told me it was now due Oct 2021. Relief!

So I can worry about one less thing. I live in London, but I don't know if this is a regional thing. My last WCA was a long time ago.

I'd advise people due a WCA re-assess not to ring too far ahead but about 6 weeks before any date they have about a re-assessment. (You'll have to be firm because woman on phone said she didn't have that info to hand out, as if it were a state secret! When I said it was an innocent question to know where I stood, and I could ask my MP to pose same q, she soon co-operated!)

Hi,
I can't understand for the life of me, why the DWP don't notify the claimant that their WCA
re-assessment has or had been referred.

It's totaly unfair not alone inhumane as the claimant/s are just in an endless game of waiting. Which as we all well know just causes more unessessary stress, and also exhacerbates the claimant/s conditions.

Common decency towards the claimant is only a phone call or a letter away. Obviously it would seem the DWP only enjoy causing misery.

regards to all.

Hi misty,

Firstly great news your esa has been deferred til 2021.

Secondly, when you rang up the DWP, did they give you a reason/s why it's been deferred?

I'm only asking as it would be interesting to know their reason/s and if others people in the forum were given the same reason too.

I've been due for ESA SG re-assessment since early May this year. And I have thought of giving them a bell. But I am too apprehensive just in case they send out the esa50 after I called them lol.


Any road all the best now you can relax.

Hi,

So sorry for delay,

No sorry, no reason was given at all though i was a bit taken aback,
I only rang as i knew it was due but was told it had been deferred until 2021,
I even rang back to double check the day after Incase i had heard wrong or there had been a mistake lol

I did ask why but no reason was given? sorry

I only rang as i was worrying myself silly that the esa50 may have gone astray so i was too scared to leave it any longer,

Good luck with yours and my fingers are crossed for you x
