new ESA RE ASSESSMENT 1 week 2 days ago #193111

Good morning

Latest update.

Phoned DWP this morning at 9.15 am, only a 5 minute wait to speak to someone.

A nice young man named Peter - he gave his name in his initial speak.
He asked for NI no, full name, address etc, all correct and polite.
He asked what I was enquiring about.
I asked for my prognosis date re next ESA form to arrive after being placed in the SG from 4th July 2017.
He checked and said July 2020 for the next round..
I asked for my ESA 85 A form etc.
He said he will sort it out and send it to me and I should receive it within 2 weeks.

All fine.
Easy to discuss and completed all within 5 minutes.

I found it easy to deal with, the person was really kind and polite.

Thank you to one and all for all your help from this site in order to get thru the fun and games to complete all our paperwork and lead us thru all the problems we face in dealing with it all.

I have found that dealing with my ESA/PIP has been reasonably painless over this last 2 years. As long as you keep copies of everything, have all the relevant GP/Consultant letters/reports and complete the forms out correctly using this site and the books to assist one, all is plane sailing.
If you require home visits get your GP to write a letter to assist such an event and if you see your GP regularly even for updates they seem to be fair with you too.

I am happy to say that I should not be having to do anything else now for the following:
1) 3 years - 2020 July re ESA SG
2) 10 years plus 2026 ? re PIP Enhanced care /mobility

Unless of course it all changes with how they want us to jump thru the hoops !!!!

Thank you one and all
