Just to clarify-I received an Esa50 at the weekend and uNderstand this still needs to be sent back because it arrived pre the decision made to suspend on the 24th?

Hi lyn

I would contact the DWP for confirmation as to whether or not you need to return your ESA50 form, if they confirm that you do not need to return the form then I would write to them confirming the conversation just to cover yourself, make sure you get the name of the person you spoke to.

The ESA legislation does not allow any extension of the time allowed to return the ESA50 form, the DWP can decide to accept a late return but there are no circumstances where they can change the return date that you have already received.

The legislation for this benefit gives the DWP the legal authority to close your claim if the questionnaire is not returned on time, it is tortuous at the best of times to overcome this situation and in the current situation you could be looking at months and quite likely many months before you would be able to resolve the situation with your ESA not being payable.
