    I'll need a little more info Michael to answer you correctly. Is this the first ESA Tribunal you've had? Meaning have you been found fit for work before? What have you been claiming since you were found fit for work?

      You can start ESA again once the Tribunal have accepted your appeal. They'll write to you when they do. When you do eventually start ESA again you'll need to continue sending in the fit/sick notes like before.

      May i ask if you're planning on appearing at the Tribunal?

      As you didn't have to send sick notes before you lost your ESA i'm guessing you were in one of the groups? The reason you have to send in those sick notes when you restart your ESA is because you were found "fit for work" You will be put back onto assessment rate while waiting for the Tribunal. Any assessment money you're owed will be back dated. If you're Tribunal is successful you'll eventually be backdated the difference between assessment rate and whatever group you're put into.

      Glad to hear you'll be attending. 65% of those who appear have a decision in their favour, i hope for you that you're one of them. Good luck and please do come back and tell us the decision.

      Hope i've been of some help.

      You can either make an appointment at your local Job centre for them to send it accross, or ring DWP for an address to send it to. All areas have different addresses.
