Had my ESA assessment in 2016 and if memory serves me right the award was for 6 years

You have a timescale on your award?  I'm still totally in the dark as to how long mine lasts (moved from WRAG to Support Group in January 2017)  In fact, I didn't think ESA awards actually had end dates....

The esa award doesnít have a definite timescale, certain people are reviewed every 6 months and others are forgotten about.
I have clients with mental health issues who also have addiction issues and they get sent an esa50 every 6 months so end up on the esa, WCA, fit for work, JSA, mr, appeal, tribunal and get put in a group and 2 weeks after the appeal get another esa50.
Itís mad.

Cannot remember the wording but that was the implication.
Might have to dig around & try & find it to see if I misread it <eek>

don't bother - as long as you are getting paid and feel your in the correct group just leave it alone.
