TOPIC: ESA Assessment Phase for over a year

ESA Assessment Phase for over a year 2 years 9 months ago #124310

Just a little update with the good news !

My young relative has been accepted into the support group by the DWP. I haven't received this in writing yet but I had a telephone conversation with the DWP. They also agreed all the back pay - a full years worth! But it gets better - even though I have nothing in writing, I have just checked the bank balance and there is a huge credit from ESA.

This will make the world of difference. Sadly my relative is still in hospital and still likely to be for a while. However, once he comes home, he will be able to buy all those things he needs to make his life much better.

Thanks again for all your help, you have been truly wonderful.

Yes, amazingly quickly.

Just his PIP form to finalize now. I know that one will be a long wait but I'm certain it will be a successful claim as I have followed all the advice given on here. Also, the doctors have confirmed the diagnoses in writing and there is lots of supporting evidence to go off with the forms.

I truly need a rest from all this form filling and running round I've been doing!

Thanks again everyone.
