Hi, this is my first time here and have been looking on various sites for answers and cant seem to find any so I hope you dont mind me posting here!

I had my medical yesterday (on a Sunday!!!!!!) but ATOS couldn't tell me what will happen next. The medical itself seemed to go OK, but as with everyone, you're left in the dark afterwards. Does anyone know how long it takes for the decision makers to decide on the results? I have been through cancer and am still suffering from the aftereffects of chemotherapy, but I suppose I'm lucky as I still have a job to go back to. The problem is that if I am turned down for ESA, I won't be able to claim JSA, as I would not be actively looking for work, as I already have a job. My occupational therapists have stated in writing that I cannot go back to work and I showed this to ATOS. I guess I'm really concerned about the benefits... if I dont get ESA or JSA, what do I get? :!:

If anyone could help, you would make my day and ease the strain of all this polaver!! xx

Hi sorry to hear about your cancer :!: I had my medical inMay and it was about 4 weeks when somebody "phoned" to tell me that I was "fit" for work and decided to appeal against the decision, which I did within the "4" week period now I am waiting for a Tribunal Hearing as I dont agree that I am "fit" for work.

 

Hope this helps I dont want to go into too much detail about my case

 

Thanks

Doesn't seem to be a set time. Could be 2 weeks or 12 weeks , sometimes depends on the area and backlog they have. But you could contact the DWP and ask them to send you the ESA85 assessors report, which will be available. Doesn't give you the final decision as this report gets sent to a DWP decision maker to decide whether ESA is awarded or not, but usually you can tell from what's on the assessors report, how the assessment went and get a good idea of whether they're recommending to DWP that you get it or not.
