It depends on what the Decision is, you could be moved to the WRAG and be asked to carry out Work Related Activity or you could be found Fit for Work.

If you are placed in the WRAG then your ESA will be reduced, if you are found Fit for Work then it will stop from the date of the Decision.

In either case you can challenge the Decision.

If the new Decision places you in the WRAG then this award will continue if you ask them to look at it again.

If no award is made then you are not entitled to any ESA payments while you go through the MR stage but would then be entitled to the ESA Assessment rate if you go on to appeal.

The ESA50 is the Work Capability Assessment form.
