TOPIC: ESA form & medical assessment

ESA form & medical assessment 8 years 9 months ago #43261

  • bubble
Hi All,

I filled in my questionnaire and counted up that I had scored over 30 points roughly, however I have been called for a medical. Is that because they dont believe that I have scored enough points in the form?

How many points again do I have to score to get ESA?

thanks

Page 15 of the Understanding ESA document in the Members area explains the criteria required to avoid the ESA medical (WCA).

You need to score 15 points or more to be eligible for full rate ESA.

Good luck with your claim.
