    Hi @piglet72, and welcome!

    So sorry to hear of your husband's experiences. There's some great information on appealing on this Citizens Advice ESA page, including how to begin the process. Hope this helps, and do feel free to come back to us with any further questions.

    How to ask for mandatory reconsideration

    You can use the CRMR1 mandatory reconsideration request form on GOV.UK - or you can just call or write a letter, using the contact details on your decision letter.

    It’s better to ask in writing because then you can keep a copy of your form or letter for yourself. However, if you're getting close to the deadline, it's best to phone first and then confirm your phone call in writing.

    Make a note of date and time and the person you've spoken to, and send a letter to confirm this as soon as you can.

    You have 1 month from the date of the decision to ask for mandatory reconsideration. You'll find the date at the top of the letter that told you the decision.
