    The DWP have the right to reassess when they deem necessary as long as its at least 3 months.  If you get awarded ESA, the DM will place a review date, which is set for a automatic review date, although one can always be called earlier if they decide to.

    The exception is if you placed in the severe group, which disabled an automatic review date although I believe the DWP will still reserve the right to manually call for an assessment if they feel its needed.  The severe group is if medical evidence is found that you expected to have the condition that makes you have LCWRA for life.
