Hi lilliegez

That really is terrific, congratulations and well done.

ESA is an indefinite award with scheduled reassessment based on the Prognosis Date completed by the assessor in their report, so your existing ESA award continues in payment until a new Decision is made.

ESA assessments can be anywhere from 3 months to two years for the WRAG and three years for the Support Group, you can find out when you are likely to be reassessed by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim, the information will be on your computer record, or requesting a copy of the assessment report.

You can write to them, use the address on the decision letter.

Hi lilliegez

You are correct, you can ask for an esa 85a or assessment report. I requested two last week and they both arrived within a few days, but I did request the reports over the phone.
