I applied for employment & support allowance at the beginning of January as I am unable to work due to a long term health condition.
i have been receiving the assessment rate of esa for almost 32 weeks.
i call DWP every 2 weeks to try & find out if they have a date for an assessment & I'm getting absolutely nowhere. The last time I called a very rude & abrupt lady told me "You are lucky, some people wait for over a year.' As you can image me, I was not happy on her response.
can anybody tell me how long the average waiting time is for an assessment? I'm not even sure I will have to go for an assessment but cannot understand why it is taking so long.
any help will be very much appreciated.
