TOPIC: ESA Deferrals?

ESA Deferrals? 3 weeks 6 days ago #237493

Hi there,

Having read some of the recent posts on the forum, I seem to be reading that several members have reported having their WCA deferred for two years.

Is this just a random selection or are the DWP really trying trying to cut back with assessments, the ones that which they deem unessassary, due to time - and more importantly expense?

Just wondering.

Thanks,

Phrank.

There is no information in the Public Domain about the DWP's policy on deferring ESA assessments so it is impossible for us to comment.

Thanks Gordon,

Was just wondering if there was any truth in the statement earlier this year by Amber Rudd the former DWP secretary in which she said that she was concentrating on getting assessments down.

Not sure if that meant for PIP, ESA, or just in general.

She was talking about PIP.
