ESA Tribunal

hi, I received my Tribunal papers in April this year 2018. But as of yet haven’t received a date for going to tribunal. Is that normal? I suffer with depression and am getting more stressed as the time goes on?

    Hi @bea63

    Welcome to the community!

    Sorry to hear that you're going through a stressful time. Unfortunately, I am unable to give you an answer as I am still learning about the various issues people face when dealing with benefits, however, many members with more knowledge will be in contact with you soon to offer their advice.

    Ami :)

    Hi,
    As that's not yet 3 months then yes it's perfectly normal. You could be waiting several months or more for a hearing date. Some people wait as long as 1 year. You can ring the Tribunal, with your reference number and ask how long they think the wait will be and they'll tell you approx how long.
