TOPIC: ESA Medical

ESA Medical 5 months 17 hours ago #174810

I've been called to an ESA medical. Fair enough, but don't see how they could put me in wrag because I also look after my daughter, for whom I get carer's allowance. Oh, and I've been sending in certificates. Seems a bit silly to me. Does anyone know the logic of this please, it's stressing me out a lot.
Thank you.
Have also reapplied for PiP, that should be fun! B)

Awards for ESA are made because the claimant meets specific criteria (the ESA Descriptors), I'm afraid your caring for your daughter is not relevant to the award that they make.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

All done, fingers crossed. Now got the ESA one to get through next week!
Stressed? Me? Oh good grief, you are not kidding!
