TOPIC: Won my ESA appeal

Won my ESA appeal 5 months 6 days ago #174173

I had my appeal on Thursday and although very stressful it felt like it was fair and they just wanted to hear how my illness affects me. After getting very anxious waiting for the post I got the letter today saying I'm entitled to ESA and am to be placed in the support group and not to be reassessed for 2 years. I felt such relief at reading that this morning.

Just curious what happens next, do I need to contact the DWP or do I just wait to hear from them?

Well done on winning your appeal.

It usually takes the DWP 5-8 weeks to process a Tribunal result. It might be worth your contacting the them just to make sure that they have received a copy of the Decision Notice.
