TOPIC: ESA 50 - when is it sent?

ESA Medical 6 months 1 week ago #159000

The reason I ask is if my memory serves me correct, when I was awarded PIP they sent a letter to state my ESA had been reviewed after being awarded PIP.

We've only seen a PIP result affect an ESA claim is a positive way.

Is it possible to ask the DWP for ESA LT54 and ESA85A for these forms when the initial decision was made in 2014 to award me ESA. Would they still have them on file and would it be of benefit to me on renewal?

They may no longer be available but you can make a Subject Access Request for the forms.

Start work and Rapid Reclaim 5 months 2 weeks ago #161070

Hi

If I was to start work over 16 hrs a week and then find I am not suited to the employment

due to my illness then what are the timescales for re-applying for ESA and going

back on the same terms and conditions and rate?

You would need to re-apply within 12 weeks, outside of this time and it will be a new claim from scratch.
