    Do you mean you sent ESA50 form back? That will go to the assessment center you will attend for ftof if needed. They inform DWP when they receive form.They usually take about 3 months to contact you from assessment center by phone to book ftof appointment. They will send appointment letter too. Then DWP will send text to remind you to attend or your benefits will stop. This is usually about 4 days before assessment. That probably what you have heard.
