In a sort of state of happy shock! Many thanks to the site organisers and contributors.

That's great news Jonboy, thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)If you contact DWP, they should be able to tell you when reassessment can be expected. You can do this by phone (ask for the 'prognosis' ) or you can write and ask for then paperwork associated with your claim. This FAQ will be relevant even if you did not have a face2face assessment.

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?

It can often take several months before DWP action this and sort out your payment, you can speed this up by sending them a copy of the Tribunal decision letter.

Mrs Hurtyback, many thanks, was wondering why I hadn't heard from the DWP yet! The tribunal also recommended that the Department does not reassess me for 2 years.

It usually takes the DWP 6-8 week to process a Tribunal result, you may be able to speed the process up by faxing a copy of the Decision Notice.

The tribunal are only able to recommend that you are not reviewed for 2 years, the DWP are not bound by this. The 2 years will also be counted from the date of the original decision rather than the tribunal. However, you might be aware that there is currently a huge delay in reassessments, heaven knows what will happen in the future!
