    The ESA assessment is different from the PIP one so the outcome may be very different.

    The only condition that is classed as a special case is terminal cancer and this has to be supported with a form from a medical professional stating that in their opinion the person will not live more than 6 months.  Every other condition is re assessed on either a 6,12,18 or 2 year basis even if it is something that will not improve, this is to make sure a person is getting the correct amount of money.  Hope this helps

      I think you're confused. The new clamiants you're talking about is the reduction in ESA payments NOT being exempt from future assessments.

      I've read that Esa is being cut from £102 to £73 in April is this for all claimants or just new claimants , the reason being is that I was supposed to have an assesment today to see if I stay in wrag or go In Support group , my appointment was cancelled till April , if they keep me in wrag will my benefits be cut or stay the same

      I answered your question on your other thread Chris. It's for new clamaints only. You've been claiming ESA for a while so ignore the cut.
