Approx, what is the duration between getting ESA Support benefit and being asked to redo ESA50 form?

I was wondering how often the DWP ask you to redo an ESA50 form, if you are in the Support group?  I was put in the Support group in Autumn 2018 (I think), and so I reckon I've been in that group for about 4.5 years now. 
Very approx, when might the DWP send me another ESA50 form to redo?
Thanks for any comments.

    Reviews are currently suspended and are not likely to restart any time soon. Normally reviews are usually every 1-3 years but like I said you won't get sent an ESA50 anytime in the near future. Your award will carry on until you are finally reviewed.

    Thanks a lot. 
    Is this suspension due to the covid problem?
    Also, will I be moved over to UC in (or by) approx 2028?

    Yeah backlogs caused by COVID, everyone on IRESA will be moved over to UC by 2028(we'll see) unless you are also claiming Tax Credits then it will be 2024.
