I sent in my Esa and Dla forms on the same day, as my Dla was due for renewal. I received a letter from Esa to say i have to go for a medical on the 23rd november. I have heard nothing from my Dla. Do you think they are waiting for the outcome of my medical?
Thank you for all the help we receive on this site.

Hi M,

I couldn't comment on the possibilities of the scenario in your question.

However, it has been known for the DWP DM to use an ESA medical report in evidence on coming to a decision on an award of DLA and visa versa.

In preparation for your medical, you may wish to read page 63 onwards of the:

Employment and Support Allowance claims on physical health grounds: a guide to the work capability assessment.

Or page 67 onwards of the:

Employment and Support Allowance claims for Mental Health and Learning Difficulties: a guide to the limited capability for work assessment.

Both accessible from this link :

cheers
