Am awaiting my ESA Tribunal hearing since October 2017
Any ideas how much longer I might have to wait till the hearing goes ahead ?

    Backlogs are huge and some are waiting a year. The best way to find out your answer with be to ring the Tribunal, give them your reference number and they will tell you approx how long the wait is.

    Rang Tribunal Service today they said there is approximately a 40 week wait in my area, so far it has been 36 weeks so they think I could be waiting for about another 4 weeks or so p. I should get two to three weeks notice of date for Tribunal hearing
