TOPIC: 13wks on ESA, should I have been grouped by now?

13wks on ESA, should I have been grouped by now? 8 years 9 months ago #44089

have now been on ESA for 13 weeks.

Have filled in an ESA 50 but heard nothing more since sending this back.

Is this normal or should I call them and ask what is going on?

thank you,

Lisa

The system is massively overloaded, so people aren't all getting their medicals promptly. However, letters go astray and you don't want to risk losing your benefit, so I think it's a good idea on your part to get in touch.
