hi had a f2f assesment for esa just had a phone call from the place that gave me the assesment says it looks like I’m in the support group but need to wait til the award comes through will the decision maker agree with the assessor I’m already on support group? Lady says should be a back payment but I don’t think so as I’m already on support group before assesment

    glad you got sorted, but tbh the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing and is quite common for them to make mistakes like this, i'm male but on my WCA was a she for some parts of it, so minor basic mistakes do happen, take the phone call as just good news and then wait for it to arrive in paper from and hope that it's then done correctly

    Hi,

    Are you sure it was from the health assessment providers? Once you've had the assessment and your file is returned to DWP it's nothing to do with the HCP. They are also not allowed to do this because the report is just a recommendation. Seems very strange to me and if it was me i'd ring DWP tomorrow and ask if a decision's been made. Good luck.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Sounds like it was the DWP because the health assessment providers don't send the report out, DWP do.

    You're welcome. Mostly they do yes, it's rare for them to go against it.
