ESA Support group for how long/? 11 months 3 days ago #204008

Hello monikoki,

ESA does not have an end date as such, but claimants are usually reassessed from anything between 3 months and 3 years. Although your decision letter doesn't state how long before your reassessment you can contact the office dealing with your claim and they should be able to confirm when your reassessment will be. There have been deferments due to a backlog and some members have seen their awards made without reassessment for a further period. More recently it has been announced that claimants with the most serious lifelong conditions that will not improve may be exempted from further reassessment. No details have as yet been forthcoming but there have been a few members informed by the DWP that they will not go through further reassessment.
