ESA Assessment


Hi everyone, well had my ESA assessment this morning , my husband went with me and he thinks the same as me that it went ok, was a Dr that I saw and he seemed quite sympathetic, but you just never know. Quite upsetting , I think having to actually say all my symptoms and feelings out loud made me realise how much my life has changed this past year, I ended up in tears. I'm exhausted now . So it's a waiting game to hear what comes back from them, hope everyone is having a good day, love and hugs xx

Hi milo, thank you. I have been getting ESA since January this year , I will let you know when I hear from them, x

Fingers crossed that you et a quick, positive response. I think I'll be looking at applying for ESA in November as that's when my sick pay from work ends. I've applied for ill health retirement from work so unsure whether I'll be eligible. I really hope your application is successful. Take care and do your best to rest, easier said than done I know haha.

Thank you Becky, today I feel as if I have been run over by a train, think I was more worked up about yesterday thatn I realised. I think you will still be eligible for ESA. I had to fight for mine I have to say , they refused me it on the grounds that I hadn't made enough NI contributions , bearing in mind that I have been working for the past 36 years apart from 10 months of the year2012 which I looked after my mum for. So I contacted my mp and withing days they had agreed to pay me, so keep that in mind. Hope today is a good day for you, xxx

I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck for your desired outcome, fingers crossed x
