TOPIC: still waiting

still waiting 6 years 9 months ago #66883

  • mr x
So, A week ago I got a letter from ATOS saying that I did not need to attend my medical regarding my ESA claim and that my file had been passed to the DWP decision maker.
How long should I realistically expect to wait for a decision about which group I will be in?
It's been a very long week so far ! The waiting is really wearing me out.
cheers. :(

Hi Mr X

I'm afraid the time it takes the DWP to make a decision is impossible to guess. It will largely depend on workload and even the DWP would probably not be able to give you an accurate idea.

I hope for your sake that it's not too long.

Good luck

Atos sent my file back to DWP in August after telling me I do not need a medical and have been accepted as not fit for work.I rang DWP and they say they have not even got my file yet ! and round and round it goes ...
is this normal? I really am starting to feel very angry and frustrated. I just want to know which group I am in .The stress from all of this is terrible.

My atos50 was received on the 29/07/11 and I was informed by letter on the 24/08/11 that I had been placed in the WRAG without a medical, about a month, that was in Edinburgh.

Thanks Leester at least that gives me some sort of idea
what to expect . I had my hopes raised by ATOS who
told me I would hear from DWP with a result within a week
of them returning my file to them! Fools.
Imay as well try to forget about it then and try to calm down.
Thanks again
