Hi all I have in the ESA support group since 2014 and today received a assessment form I'm sure they told me I would have no more assessments is this a normal thing or do I need to contact them? Cheers Chris

    Hi Chris,

    This is perfectly normal. Everyone is re-assessed regular and the maz amount of time anyone can have in the Support Group before reassessment is 3 years. You'll need to fill in that ESA50 form just like you did the first time, gather all evidence and send it with the form. You only have till the date on the letter which should be approx 1 month in which to return it. Ring them if you need more time to send it back and they'll extend that time. If you don't fill it in and return it they'll stop your money.

    I'm in the Support Group and was re-assessed last year after 3 years. Managed a paper based decision so no f2f assessment was needed for me, but i sent it excellent supporting evidence. Hopefully if you have evidence you may not need another assessment. Good luck.
