TOPIC: ESA awarded indefinitely?

ESA awarded indefinitely? 1 year 3 months ago #203622

Hi, firstly I would like to thank you as by using your guides my son was awarded ESA in the support group again. We received his award letter today and was surprised to find out that he would not be called in for an assessment again. I called to check and they confirmed that this was indeed the case and the award was indefinite.

Is this something new as we was told the longest was for 3 years? Can we really trust that he won't be called in again?

Congratulations on the award, especially if you have been told that there will be no further assessments, this was a change brought in only a couple of months ago.

Thank you, his letter definitely states you will not be called in for another assessment unless there is a change in your health condition. I didn't realise it was a new rule so thankfully we can relax a bit now.
