ESA Support Group 8 years 3 months ago #112324

Twenty weeks after submitting my ESA50, the dreaded brown envelope arrived yesterday informing me that I have been placed in the Support Group, without being called for a medical. I keep re-reading the letter to make sure that I have read it right!
Thank you to everyone at B&W for providing such comprehensive guidelines with regards completing the forms and for all the advice and help.

That is great news! Thanks for letting us know and for the kind words about this site :)

If you wish to have an idea of when to expect reassessment you can phone DWP and ask for the 'prognosis' which should be on the computer screen. You can also request a copy of the ESA85 form, which should show the prognosis and also indicate which descriptors you met (you can ask for this over the phone but should follow up the request in writing). If you want to see all the paperwork associated with your claim, you can submit a 'subject access request', this should also be in writing.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Congratulations on The SG award P !!! :cheer:

Hopefully it will have a long prognosis, 3 years is the longest possible.

How often will I be reviewed

Thanks for the positive feed back regarding B&W.
