TOPIC: ESA Tribunal

ESA Tribunal 8 months 8 hours ago #212325

Hi I passed my WCA and also the mandatary appeal so went to Tribunal August last year. I waited and waited until I received a letter from the DWP saying my assessment rate ESA was stopping the 17 May. I rang the tribunal service in Birmingham and was eventually told my tribunal date was 8th June at 3.30 pm. Then out of the blue I get a text from the DWP saying they have reviewed my appeal and put me back in the support group until April next year. The reasons they gave were the exact same reasons I put on the ESA50 and also restated in my appeal. Back dated payments were paid to me on Monday along with a ESA payment Tuesday. Has this happened to anyone else..

Congratulations on the award, well done.

The scenario you mention is not that unusual.
