ESA on hold

Hi I put in a claim for ESA through universal credit last July and got told after my telephone assessment I had to go for a face to face meeting.  I currently have fibromyalgia and ME and I am struggling with working 24 hours.  Has anyone else had to wait to go to a f2f assessment?

    Although they are trying to do assessments by phone sometimes they conclude that a face to face is needed. At the moment that means waiting because all f2f are suspended. There are others in the same situation.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
