TOPIC: Successful ESA appeal time scales

Successful ESA appeal time scales 3 months 6 days ago #195226

Good morning,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me please.
I had a successful tribunal hearing on the 28th June this year. I was awarded ESA from 0 points to 15 points and placed in the support group. Which I couldn't have done with this websites help, thank you.
As yet and despite several phone calls and the standard answer of "there is no time scale", which I find barbaric, Iv as yet to receive any payment or documentation from the DWP. Can anyone tell me what's a reasonable time scale for payments etc. Iv received no money for over a year now so you can imagine I'm very keen to get things back on track.
Thank you in advance for any help.

Kind regards S

HI Shelley,

It usually takes DWP around 8 weeks to get payments started after a tribunal. You might be able to speed it up by sending them a copy of the Tribunal decision (if they say the delay is because they have not received their copy).

The only other thing I can suggest is to get your MP involved, they can often get things moving.

Contacting your MP

I'll certainly contact my MP and get the ball rolling as the don't seem to be in any great rush.
Thank you again.
