Hi, I was in WRAG for a year between Dec 2015 and Dec 2016, when I was moved into the Support Group. I had my ESA50 for that in August 2016 and the assessment in October of the same year.


When I rang the DWP to ask about my award period, she first looked and said it ended in April 2017 but then corrected herself and said it was an 18 month award. Question is - when does my 18 month period go from? When I got the ESA50, or when I got my assessment result in December?


Will I get sent an ESA50 automatically as I was last year?

It doesn't matter and DWP aren't obliged to stick to the 18 months anyway.


DWP cannot end your award until after you've been assessed as fit for work at a face-to-face assessment. When DWP want to reassess you they will send you another form. If your condition improves in the meantime you are of course obliged to tell them.


I was due to be reassessed at least a year ago and I'm still waiting.
