I was told it takes 3 weeks to reach a decision.x


Hello and welcome to our friendly fibro forum where you can find help, understanding, advice and friendship.

Many of our members have experiences ESA assessments, some more than once and it seems the wait for a decision can be from 3 weeks to several months. It depends if the DWP want more evidence from your doctor or consultant.

If you think you have "failed" , gather up your paperwork ready, ask for a copy of the report and put in a Mandatory Consideration. People are often denied this at the first go, I think because the DWP are hoping you will find it too stressful and give up.

I wish you good luck and hope for a positive outcome.

Looking forward to seeing you around the forum.
