TOPIC: ESA review after 5 years

ESA review after 5 years 4 weeks 1 day ago #221348

I have been in receipt of ESA WRAG during this time by son was found to have a brain tumour. The result ending up bad. He was put in the support group ESA and receive both standard rates of pip on going . They tryed taking his ESA off his this year and after a mandatory reconsideration was awarded his original benefits. I had to move from DLA to Pip last year and was awarded standard for both. I care had have cared for my son since his discharge from hospital in 2016. I am now being called in for an ESA assement. I assumed as I am in poor health myself and care for my son that I would be exempt from being called in. Any advice. 4 weeks to return form .

I'm afraid being a carer does not exempt you from having your ESA award reassessed.

Have a look at our ESA Claim guides for assistance with the form

If you have any specific questions then please reply to this post and we will do our best to help,
