About how long will it be after I submit the ESA50 until I have a medical assessment?

Average time is probably around five weeks, but there can be very considerable variation.

It also assumes that you will be required to attend a medical, which is not always the case.

Hi Lyn, my ESA50 was signed for 7 weeks ago and I haven't heard anything yet. Last year I only waited about 2 weeks,

Best Wishes,
Rachel

My experience is so similar to Rachels! My form was signed for 6 weeks ago ..no news yet but before the migration the wait for a so-called medical was two weeks. As I know it has been received I am not keen to rush things by chasing it..whatever the outcome I am likely to *need* to be asessed again within a few months...Other people have suggested on here getting into a routine of keeping medical records and info about our conditions updated regularly and being prepared as much as possible..this reduces the stress of it a little...highly recommended and is what I will do until we can overturn the WCA/Atos...!
