1st applied for ESA in January 2011, went for my 1st Medical Assessment and was placed in the Work Related Group. Got a limited Capability for work questionnaire (ESA50) last year, which I completed and attended another Medical assessment after which I was put in the Support Group.
I have now being sent another ESA50 form to fill and when I called to enquire as to why, I was told that I needed to complete it and nothing more.
I was of the impression that I only needed to complete the ESA50 form and take the assessments if necessary twice. Can some please explain to me what is going on as I’m currently recuperating from a total hip replacement carried out late September last year and just can’t bear going through all these again? Is this an annual test?
