    Thumbs down ESA still waiting for decision

    Hello everyone,

    I have been on ESA since june, I had my WCA in the middle of december and their report was recieved by the decision maker on the 17th. I am still waiting for a decision despite being told this would take 6 working days, is this normal or should i start chasing them up?

    Thanks

    Unfortunatley this is all too normal.

    Decisions can take time depending on the circumstances of your claim and the person who told you 6 working days was being overly optimistic.

    It depends on how busy the office dealing with your claim is, and dont forget there have just been the christmas / new year holidays to slow things down a bit.

    You can of course phone them to ask how things are progressing, but be aware that the person you get through to (after about 12 to 20 mins waiting) is in a call centre and can only tell you what comes up on their screen about your claim, they don't have any influence in the decision process itself.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
