    It doesn't give much time so I assume it will just be the phone call, things aren't quite as normal as we all know.
    And welcome to scope @julie2419

    Definitely doesn't leave much time at all, if they were planning on sending out some forms it would be a very tight squeeze to get them filled out, keeping in mind any postal delays.

    Hope the phone call goes well.

    I've seen a few similar posts on here recently.  Where they do just phone and ask a few simple questions to confirm the ongoing award, rather than having to go through the whole form and assessment process again.

    Good luck with it!

    Just to let you all know my ESA telephone assessment for tomorrow is cancelled as the assessor is sick. dwp rang yesterday and they said will send another appointment which will be a weekday rather than weekend.

    Just a update,i had my ESA telephone assessment with the health care professional today in the morning,lasted for 30 mins. was mainly about my health and how things are now. Things have increased and my epilepsy has gotten worse. he told me esa wont be stopped but they are checking wether im getting the right amount or not. I was anxious especially before the assessment but I just told him how things were etc. They said dwp have the letters from my epilepsy nurse. He said i will be contacted in a few weeks from dwp. Im just glad its over.
