I sent my ESA50 long with doctors letters and specialists letters to Glasgow ASC, Wolverhampton address on the 02 of May....

 

Called centre for health and disability assessments.

They told me as of yesterday 22/05, DWP requested that my file be withdrawn from their services and returned to them...

 

MY nervous are shattered now.

Has anyone got experience of this happening or a possible reason,

Naturally i'm trying to get through to DWP but it's taking me ages.

 

Got my worried now.... Thanks

ESA income based or contribution based ?

 

Have you had any recent change of circumstances ?

 

What health issue is being assessed ? That might be the reason, if the health situation is serious or there is enough evidence from Doctors to support that you are not going to be fit for any work for a time period, therefore making a face to face assessment not necessary. In that case someone from medical services may have said to ESA that there is enough Doctors information for an ESA decision maker to decide based on the information provided.

 

I have seen similar cases where no face to face assesment is required, as there was enough information from a Doctor on paper.

 

Give ESA a call in the morning and find out.

Hi, Thanks for reply.

 

I've been on ESA since 2015. I got an ESA50 start of April and due back for 9th may. They got it exactly on this date.

 

My circumstances from 2015 are literally the same, Nothing has changed.

 

My doctor wrote me an extremely good letter, A long with a few specialists letters that he printed out for me.

 

I just hope this is a positive outcome rather than negative. This entire week it's been someone or another happening.

 

I will call first thing tomorrow, I called today and the agent said your situation isn't serious enough for me to call benefit delivery centre now, And you will get a call back within 48 hours, I suffer from extreme anxiety etc. So keeping someone like me waiting for 48 hours, Is literally torture.

 

Can I just ask, DWP can't close or say one is fit for work based on paper information, Do they need to face to face to at least come to that conclusion?

Yes I would think that has to be correct that any closure of claim or fitness to work would have to be after face to face.

 

Sounds lke your Doctors information may have been accepted. But ESA will need to confirm.

 

What the agent means is that they are waiting for a decision maker to issue the decision and they cannot escalate at this point.

 

So you will have to wait and see.

Rather annoying called ESA and they can't find any information on what I've said and what the health assessment people either.

 

Can the ESA agent directly call my local BDS and find it, Because waiting for a callback is extremely stressing me out! I don't know if im coming or going.

Well DWP called me and didn't help me one bit. They just said the information was sent back for new information to be considered.

 

Really confused now.

I know it's hard, combo but you really need to try and park this. Or it will drive you mad. The DWP tend to work at their own speed and you can't change that.

 

I understand all about anxiety but some things you can't change. I would try not to think about it.

So I managed to speak to a DWP decision maker on the 4th. They basically told me something different to the people at Centre for health and disability told me. The centre told me that the WCA was withdrawn by DWP thats all they had, DWP told me that it was withdrawn because the assessment centre needs more information. Decision maker couldn't tell me what information was needed or what is going to happen. But just basically to wait. And there is a backlog as well.

 

Stressful.
