Hi,

Even though a DLA award is called 'indefinite' it can be subject to review at any time under a scheme called the Right Payment Programme. This is where a small percentage of claims (which are over one year since a last review/award) can be reviewed. Some claims are chosen totally at random for these reviews.

As to whether your ESA medical report may be used, the answer is it could be, however they may decide you need a new medical or you may not get a medical at all. It is impossible to tell.

If you have a copy of the ESA medical report and it is favourable to you and demonstrates the care/mobility needs you have, then there is nothing to stop you enclosing it.

Pete

Has in this case the ESA medical caused the DLA review ? Timing makes me think that
