    They will send you another ESA50 form which has to be filled in and returned by the date stated. You'll also need to send in all evidence with the form to support your claim.

    Hi brian

    You should not have to ask for a form. ESA is an open ended benefit and can be reassessed at any time, some are being defered due to backlog.
    You can ring DWP and ask when your review date is, this will not trigger a new assessment but there have been cases where forms have not been received and claims stopped.
