TOPIC: Indicators of substantial risk

Indicators of substantial risk 9 months 5 days ago #152180

reassessment time - right on its due date - computer printout stated reassessment flag on 23/2/2016 and form popped through my door 26/2/2016 - that's quick!

currently in the support group (substantial risk) - assessed about 2 years ago

with the new guidelines - indicators of substantial risk - is it advisable in the bit on page 5 where you talk about your health conditions to put perhaps at the bottom

Indicators of substantial risk:-
1) ....
2) ...

and just list all that you think applies - or try to put the information in the text and hope the health professional picks them out?

Thanks

I would make a specific reference to it on the form.

Well finally 7 months after Maximus received my ESA form, I got an email this morning from them to say they had returned my form to DWP and I wouldn't need a face to face.

That's a relief but still need to know if support group or WRAG. Do you know how long the DWP are taking at the moment to make and send out decisions?

thanks

Hi FoxyLady,

Many ESA decisions are only taking a few weeks - 2 or 3 in some cases.

Hi FoxyLady

Thats great news. Fantastic you didnt need a
F2F.

Good luck with a support group decision.

Im still waiting to hear if I need a F2F. Currently 28 weeks since form returned to Maximus.

Best wishes
Ruby

Thanks Ruby -

it is such a relief and I'm sorry you are having such a long wait too. At least you know that a long wait doesn't predict a face to face. Hope you hear positively and soon.
