I would like to give a big thank you to our Gordon and others here for all your support in keeping my head as I just couldent do this without you.

I now have my decision over my ESA and been kept in the Support Group and all done in 3 months without a need for an assessment and was all done Paper Based, thank god because I knew I couldent have coped with having or going to one.

I know now I will be able to try and relax now DLA to PIP is out the way also and No more brown envelopes for a while again.

I will be phoning soon and asking for how long, and for my ESA85A report as my decision letter dosent state how long for, also no mention of the exemption criteria on my decision letter which I know I fit and should be in.

So looks like I might have to go through it again at some point again in the future.

But for now I'm just gonna try and be free of all brown envelopes till the next time.

Thank you Gordon and all so much, and I wish each and everyone of you good luck.:)

Cheers buddy.

Phoned the DWP for my ESA85A and asked how long in the Support Group and was told 2 years and I thought your having a laugh.

So im thinking when the paperwork comes back to me and which she explained it all to me over the phone what the ESA85A has written on it and it agrees and confirms all my medical evidence and I’m not good and only gave me 2 years?

I don’t know whether I can do a MR or then to appeal or if I can on an award length, as my last assessment in 2014 clearly states deterioration function noted and was given 3 years but re assed after 4.

I’ve got a lot worse since then and taken many attempts on my life, and is all well documented. I really don’t understand how they come to these conclusions.
2 years ESA on-going PIP how does that work…

I'm afraid ESA Decisions do not include the length of the award or the date that the claimant will be reassessed, so there is no right of appeal on this.

You can try contacting the Decision Maker but as their decision is based on the recommendation of the assessor they may simply refer you back to the contents of the report.

Gordon thanks for the clarification on I can't appeal...

But I'm not sure what you mean regarding the report I take it might be the ESA85A your talking about?

The lady at the DWP said also in the (longer term) how do you get hold of the decision make it's all above my head and understanding.


Thanks Neil for the kind words.
