TOPIC: ESA Query

ESA Query 1 month 4 days ago #238796

I have recently gone through PIP application and have been awarded Enhanced/Enhanced, reassessment from June 2022, not long after I received my PIP application form to fill in I received an ESA form, first review of ESA since having to go to a Tribunal, where I was placed in the Support Group.
I duly filled in the ESA form with added paperwork and posted it signed for delivery. The paperwork was delivered to them on the 1st August. It is now over 10 weeks since they received it and I have heard nothing from them.
One of my neighbours received his review form 2 days before me and has had his face to face assessment weeks ago. Is it normal to wait this long without hearing anything?
Many thanks for your advice.

Hi Karen

You would have expected to hear by now, but honestly, there are huge variations even when people live in the same area. You can always ring them and ask what is happening or just wait.
