First time esa claimant

n31 Member Posts: 18 Listener
Help. I recently applied for esa in november and sent in the supporting evidence before christmas and i still havent heard anything back. I keep  getting different answers when i call. Why is taking so long eventhough this is the first time i have ever applied for esa. Also will the other benefits I receive be affected because of delayed response for esa? I have also been diagnosed with ASD recently. Thanks
