After waiting an agonising 9 months from submittal of the ESA ATOS form, until my assessment, I have been placed in the support group. The whole experience I found to be extremely stressful, constant anxiety waiting for the letter to come, I felt that I could not live my life comfortably, such was the stress that this new system of claiming placed upon me, and of course, has placed on many others. At times, I felt like giving up and ending it all.

There should be no more than a month wait from submittal of form to assessment. Any time more than this is a heavy burden placed upon vulnerable people, who do not need the high levels of anxiety that this brings. It is a disgrace. So while I am celebrating my news, my celebration is muted, as I am fully aware that there are many others experiencing exactly the ordeal that I have just been through.

Thank you Benefits and Work for the invaluable support that you offer to those in need.

Congratulations on the award and thank you for your comment about B&W.

The ESA system is still a mess and is likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.
