Incapacity Benefit to ESA

Post by heatedmedia on Mon Jul 10, 2017 4:54 pm

Hi all, I'm new here. I have been on I.B. since 2011, I had to go to tribunal, but I won. I've not been contacted since winning, but have just received a letter telling me that I need to move to ESA as I.Benefit is no longer used. I have the ESA form to fill in and I am wondering whether my claim will just be changed over from one to the other, or will I have to attend a medical etc? The last time I went through all this it almost killed me, the zero points after ATOS medical along with all the lies I had to contest, the appeal, waiting to go to tribunal (terrified), I won eventually but it took the best part of a year so I'm petrified that I'm gonna have to do it all again. Is it possible that they might just switch me to ESA once they receive my ESA50? Has that happened for anyone else migrating from I. Benefit to ESA? I would be very grateful for any advice offered, I'm in a proper state.

your incapacity benefit should change over to the new esa system without any problems at all

there shouldnt be any new forms to fill out on a straight change over

heres the info that you require

No new claim will be required for the move to ESA, the process will be triggered by a notice to the customer. wrote:

@heatedmedia

May I ask if you requested the form, or if it was sent to you without you requesting it please?
