    Hi,

    If you're talking about the Incapacity benefit to ESA underpayments then decision waiting times are between 12-20 weeks. Once a decision's been made they will write to you.
    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.

    If it is in process does that mean I’m entitled to the back pay

    No, it means it's being looked at and a decision has yet to be made.
