    Hi I presume you mean ESA and not EESA?  If so this stands for Employment and Support Allowance and is the benefit you claim if you are unable to work through illness.  The assessment you went to is standard procedure to be able to keep claiming the benefit.  If you do then no problem but if you don't then you have to either appeal or sign on JSA to look for work instead.

    I hope this is a bit clearer,

    EESA is just what they use for payments to banks. Hypercats explanation is correct. Good luck with the decision.

      That's completely wrong info, sorry. EESA is not enhanced employment support allowance. As i stated in my previous post it's just what they use sometimes when paying money into a bank account. There's no such thing as enhanced employment support allowance lol

      ESA awards are between 1 and 3 years. Unless with the new guidlines a claimant is awarded life time ESA with no further re-assessments. Up to now i've only heard of 1 person.
