TOPIC: ESA reconsideration secretary of states response

ESA reconsideration secretary of states response 8 years 8 months ago #17665

  • ada russell
After having my ESA claim turned down I asked for it to be reconsidered. The secretary of states response under the facts of the case stated I was awarded ESA from 6/12/08.Under the descision it said that I was not entitled to ESA from 23/07/09. I had no income whatsoever during that time, and did not receive ESA benefit or any other benefit. What action should I take.

In general, we advise people to go straight to appeal rather than asking to have a decision looked at again first. This is because the success rate for revisions is very low. In addition, if you appeal, then a revision will be carried out automatically as part of the appeals process.

The next step would be ask the DWP what has happened to the payments of ESA for the period from 6 December 2008 to 23 July 2009, as you were obviously entiled to ESA for this period according to the Secretary of State's own submission.

Additionally, if you wish to appeal the adverse ESA decision, this can be done using form GL24 which is available HERE.
