TOPIC: Taken Off ESA 0 Points

Taken Off ESA 0 Points 1 month 3 weeks ago #170352

Can I just have clarification on the following please.
If my son puts in a MR will his ESA be reinstated whilst that is being reconsidered?
Or if his MR is not reversed and he appeals to a tribunal will his ESA be reinstated whilst he is waiting for his appeal to be heard.

He is not entitled to any ESA during the MR.

If he appeals then once this has been accepted by the Tribunal Service and the DWP have received notification then he can receive the ESA Assessment rate while he waits for a hearing.

I would request the MR now. There are template letters in the ESA section he can use.

ESA will not be paid while the MR is undertaken. Payment will recommence once the Tribunal Service notify DWP that they have accepted your son's appeal.

To re-iterate, the time for MR request runs from the date on the decision letter. Only basic information is needed to lodge the request. In fact, there is a maximum of 13 months allowed for the request but DWP only have to accept it outside of 1 month unless you show 'good cause'.
