So im in sg esa till 2018 ive seen it on here saying that people are being sent new question forms now ready for when there esa ends next year.

I also seen it said that some people are having there benefits put back for 2 yrs.

Does this mean i will hear from dwp soon regarding my reassesment ready for next year or if not do they send you a letter telling you your assesment has been put back

      Hi folks.

      Just reading the posts regarding ESA dates. I'm still amazed how other folk have been given dates when they're up for reassement yet i have never been given a date. Still can't figure out why. Dawn wanders if her claim has been put back, but what does "put back" mean? And why would I not be given a date?

      Well even with a few more months yet to go, I will probably give a call and find out. Have you heard of a forum called Youreable, if not register and ask the folks there.

      No, you're thinking of PIP. Those claiming PIP are reviewed 1 year before the award ends NOT those claiming ESA.

    You're getting confused between ESA and PIP. Those claiming ESA are NOT re-assessed 1 year before their award ends. You're thinking of PIP. Those claiming PIP are reviewed 1 year before their award ends. I wouldn't worry about your ESA as you have till next year. They'll most likely contact you somewhere near to when your award is due to end. There was a backlog for ESA reviews but i think that backlog has now cleared. Just relax for now as it's still 2017 and you and anyone else will NOT and never is re-assessed 1 year before the award ends.
