I am claiming ESA but it is coming to the end on 4 July but I am still waiting to have my Work Capability Assessment.

The letter I received said will get income-related ESA but it might not be at the same rate that I am getting now.

Can anyone tell me if this is a lower rate as I am struggling to make ends meet as it is.

Also has anyone else had to wait this long for their Assessment?

Looking forward to hearing from you

  • Hi Pamg,

    I am also on ESA Benefit, I know they are well behind with it all which is probably for the delay of your assessment.

    I would say they can't really tell you what rate you will get until they've received the forms and after the assessment etc but perhaps I'm wrong.

    But I would say go to this fabulous website as they advise you on what to do in your assessment and how to fill out the forms.

    I hope I've helped in some

    Good luck
