When do you actually reach State Retirement Age

Contact the DWP office dealing with your claim, it should be possible to get the reassessment cancelled, given the delays in the assessment process there is no hope of a Decision being made before you get your pension.

If you cannot get the ESA50 withdrawn, I would, first of all, escalate the issue to a DWP manager, this normally requires a callback, if you still have no luck then contact your MP, finally return the ESA50 with minimal information at the last possible moment, most claimants are waiting 8 or 9 months for a face to face.

Hello Gordon, thanks for reply. Esa50 sent 24th, retirement date first week in November. So I make that roughly 3and half months from them sending form out to my retirement.

Yes I will do everything u suggest, thanks.

Another option I thought was to just send copy of my previous form and say nothing has changed since last time.

Anyway will see if my support worker will ring them on my behalf tomorrow. Keep you posted, and thanks again. :)

Yes, sending your previous ESA50 is an option.
