I was recommended this group from a friend and I'm glad I did sign up.
My partner received the ESA3 form early October and I thought it was best to ignore it.
When they sent a following letter saying they hadn't received it I filled it in.
They then asked for my wage slips from I started working over 24 hours per week - I only worked 4 hours per week beforehand as I was recovering from Cervical Cancer.
I started working over 24 hours from March 2017. The letter stated they need info from June 2013.
During that period of time I only worked 4 hours - up until March 2017.
Heard nothing back, is it likely my partner would qualify for the EDP during the period of June 2013 until March 2017. 
He was moved to CB when transferred to ESA in June 2013.
Any advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
