TOPIC: ESA Timescale help

ESA Timescale help 3 years 1 month ago #119407

Hi had my ESA50 back in august 2013 filled it in and returned it - It was received by ATOS on 6th Sept 13..Spoke to ATOS customer relations who then rang me back on fri 21st March to say they'd finished with my claim and had sent results back to DWP and I didn't need a medical this time (Thank goodness!). Have heard from DWP today to say I've been put into the support group from 21st March for 3 years. Thought I'd post to firstly say thank you to Benefits and Work for your fantastic guides - Couldn't have done it without your help!! And secondly to give others in same situation an idea of timescales - 30 weeks to the day from posting to receiving results!! :) Now just to await my PIP results after my medical next week :unsure:
