There are 3 stages to applying for ESA:
1. Fill in the claim form (called the ESA1 or NSESAF1) - everyone has to do this.2. Complete a 'capability for work questionnaire' with questions about your health and abilities (called ESA50) - most people have to do this.3. Go to a medical assessment with a healthcare practitioner - most people have to do this.
There can be a gap of several weeks, or even months, between each stage of the process.
