TOPIC: Any Updates on Wait Times?

Any Updates on Wait Times? 5 years 11 months ago #72473

Is there any idea how long people are waiting now after sending ESA50 back to hear about a medical?

I sent mine back 7 weeks ago and haven't heard back but have checked it was received on Post Office site.

A few days ago I got a Motability brochure from the DWP saying did I know that as on HR mobility I could use it to get a car. Has anyone else had this? . I am confused as to why they would send this.

any ideas?

Hi,


Waiting times whist ones ESA claim is processed vary across the country. With the ongoing migration of Incapacity Benefit claimants as well as normal 'new' ESA claims it has slowed down the process markedly. A wait of between 6 and 12 weeks or longer is not unusual at the moment.

Re the Motability Brochure it is probably just routine advertising by Motability who will pay the DWP to send out the brochures to potential customers.
