ESA support group. Length of time.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi folks. Just a quick question about ESA support group. Has anyone had to Have a f2f for their claim in the last 6month even though they've had previous f2f? Only asking due to recent government stance about repeated f2f being sometime stopped. Thanks for any info.

    Hi Ian, they can re-assess you at anytime. The usual max amount of time someone can be given is 3 years for ESA at any one time. This would be before they contact you. Lots are given less time than that though. There was something about the f2f stopping for those with certain conditions but haven't heard if this has started. It doesn't or won't apply to everyone.
