TOPIC: Sucessful ESA Appeal....thank you!!!

Sucessful ESA Appeal....thank you!!! 4 years 10 months ago #90956

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for this amazing site! The site really helped me to appeal my ESA decision. I now have enough points and had the benefit awarded yesterday at my tribunal! The guides helped me every step of the way and helped to keep me focused when I felt overwhelmed by the whole process.

Thank you!!! XXX

Hello All
I am not sure if this is the right place to post but as I am in a state of elation and shock I feel I must send my thanks to Benefits and Work.I was transferred last year form IB to the ESA WRAG.I decided to Appeal. Nine months later notification of the Appeal came and I followed your guidance meticulously.I only strayed from the advice in that I did not attend the appeal but opted for a a paper hearing.
Today I received word that I am being placed in the Support Group.
Thank You so much for a fantastic service and my case shows that even PAPER HEARINGS can be successful.Good Luck everybody.

Hi Nb,

You could have started a new thread, however we are always glad to hear of success stories, no matter where they are posted. :)

Well done on winning your appeal !!! :cheer: :cheer:

Thank you very much for letting us know and for your comments regarding B&W.

You are correct, in that appellants can be successful with "paper hearing" however the success rate does rise for "oral hearings", and rises even further where the appellant has professional representation.

You must have submitted compelling evidence, well done for that. !!!

You can now look forward to receiving any backpay owed from the date of the WRAG decision, and as you will be classed as having been in the SG since that time, your "clock" will be reset to zero with respect to the 365 day limit to payment of CB ESA in The WRAG.

It may help to speed up any backpayment of benefit owed, if you forward a copy of The Tribunal decision to the DWP office that deals with your ESA.
