TOPIC: ESA 50 - when is it sent?

ESA1 form 5 months 5 days ago #174747

I made an application for ESA over the phone.

I have received the application form completed from what I said over the phone n the post.

What do I do with this form.

Do I need to sign it and return it back or just keep hold of it?

Thanks

Hi Synapse,

Yes, check the form over, sign and return it. Take a copy for your own records if you are able to.

Customer Statement 5 months 4 days ago #174796

Hi

I am very confused.

On page 2 of the customer statement it states:

Do not sign or return this customer statement

It says to check to see if anything is wrong or if anything has changed.

They have requested my P45 but have not received it yet.

There is nowhere on the form to sign it

Please clarify

I'm sorry but I'm not even sure what you are looking at, I suggest you contact the DWP for clarification.

Spoke to ESA BDC.

They said as the call was recorded when applying over the phone there is no

need to sign and return the statement as a verbal declaration is made.. This has been the

case for sometime.

ESA 50 Sent 4 months 1 week ago #176923

Well I have just sent off my ESA50 but won't be holding my breath.

Do they sent an Acknowledgement letter to confirm they have received it

and how long should I give them before chasing it up if they have not received it?
