We have been asked by the DWP to carry out an assessment in relation to your benefit claim. WCA AL1C 02/15 is in the info but doesn't say what for. Help please


The reference to a WCA would suggest that this is in regard to an ESA claim!

Have you recently completed an ESA50?

October last year, I filled in a form for ESA. Not heard anything since. Can they not use my f2f for pip as I have just had it? Thanks for the help, it's much appreciated.

I'm afraid not, the criteria are too different.

Have a look at the following.

Invited to a face to face assessment but no ESA50 sent

Sorry about all the questions but it just feels like the proverbial hits the fan. Is it the same company that does the medicals and will they not use that assessment? Thanks again

ESA assessments are done by Maximus they have no involvement in the PIP process. A PIP assessment report can be used to help make an ESA Decision but it cannot replace an ESA assessment, as I said, the criteria are too different.
