    Odd. It's always been shown on my previous award letters.
    This letter is different to the last one I received nearly two years ago now. The last one said I had been found to meet the requirements...
  3. Award letter arrived, but there's no date?

    I have had my award letter come through, which tells me I have been awarded the support group, bit for some reason it doesn't tell me how long?

    Also ring them in a couple of days and ask for a copy of the esa85 report. I asked for mine yesterday and it came today. I only had my assessment on Saturday. :)

    That's the best way, because until you have the decision, nothing is for definite.

    But take comfort in the fact that I've had two assessments that have gone that way now, and the hcp has...

    Yeah, but usually the discrepancies aren't in the claimants favour, but this report definitely is in my favour.
    Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate his findings, but I think had he assessed me...

    OK, I understand now you have put it like that.

    I just prefer to be upfront and honest about everything so nothing comes back to bite me.

    Pain wise, the meds do nothing, I have tried them...

    The longest I have gone is three years, even though I was awarded 12 months.
    Then the second time I was awarded 18 months and was reassessed bang on 18 months.

    Try and not let it get you down too much. I was terrified 18 months ago before my last one, but it was positive. Then this time I refused to worry about it and put it to the back of my mind. I just...

    Thanks guys.

    I also sent my via recorded tracked delivery, I know how the DWP love to "lose" our reports.
    It's just a matter of waiting then, mine is also in Birmingham.
  17. Timescale for sending esa form back and getting an assessment?

    Is it another case of 'how long is a piece of string'?
    Or is there an average timescale. I sent it back two weeks ago and have not even received a text to say they have received it.
