TOPIC: ESA50 App

ESA50 App 3 months 1 week ago #194913

I am exhausted at having the stress of yet another horrendous form ESA50, as now unable to work down to 3 chronic conditions, are these connected to pip at all as I managed to get standard rate whilst I was able to work,my pip review is due soon and i have some significant health changes with further medical evidence, do you know if it is a full application again or can this be submitted at the review.:(

I'm afraid a PIP report cannot replace your completing the ESA50 and potentially attending a face to face assessment, you may be able to use the report as evidence for your ESA claim but you will need to explain the relevance, as even where there are areas of overlap the criteria can be quite different.

Thank you Gordon for your reply, I understand this is a separate benefit entirely
My main question was I have significant deterioration in my health, will I need to wait for my pip review to mention the changes and offer them further med evidence, or just wait for my review which is due soon?

I am also trying to tackle the ESA50 as am unable to work now. Sorry but just struggling with it all and finding the whole process overwhelming. Kind regards

Hi Darcy,

I'm afraid I am not sure what you are asking. You say 'will I need to wait for my review, or just wait for my review'. Can you clarify this please?

Hello again apologies for talking nonsense and not making myself clear..brain just not working!

My pip award was for 2 years 9 months and I have had some more changes to my health conditions.I beleive im due a review around 18 months or possibly before..If I notify them of the changes in my health will this mean a full new application? Not sure of the processes as new to this.
Many thanks for your help

I would expect you to be reassessed 1 year before the end of your existing award..

If you report a change in your conditions now then you will be reassessed immediately, subject to the current delays in the assessment process, a new PIP2 and almost certainly a face to face assessment.
