ESA85A 3 years 1 month ago #119448

Was taken off WRAG group on to support group, thank you for your advice,invaluable. I called DWP and requested ESA85a, the advisor said, she didn't know that form but she would go through my claim with me. I said, I wanted the prognosis from my assessment and she informed me that this would be February 2015. Is ESA85a still in use do I request another form.

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

The ESA85A (if you did not have a face to face) and the ESA85 (if you did) are both still in use.

I would suggest that write to the DWP office dealing with your claim.

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?
