I sent my ESA50 form by Special Delivery, which they received on 13th March, and I haven't heard anything at all back. I'm still getting IB paid into my bank.
Two and a half months have now passed since they received my form and supporting letters from my GP and Counsellor. Any ideas how long I have to wait to hear from them? I don't want to get in touch with them about it; keeping a low profile seems sensible! I'm going by 'no news is good news', but the waiting is making my anxiety worse.
Thanks for any help you can give.
Similar to you Tendo, my ESA50 was due back by 6 April.As of today I have not heard a word and am still receiving IB benefit fortnightly, my most recent was 31 May. Towards the end of April I contacted DWP to inquire if my form had been received. I was told that if I am still receiving benefit then the form would have been received. I am also trying to think no news is good news but it doesn't really help me, I, like you and probably like everybody else in this forum find the waiting unbearable. Also I read the forum daily and see all these horror stories it makes me even more anxious thinking what if I encounter all these problems. Perhaps it may be better if I stop reading the forum until I have some definite answer from Atos/DWP. This is not a criticism of the forum but the more I read the more I worry and am convinced by other peoples experiences that I may be placed in WRAG as opposed to the support group (I am housebound)or worse still not even get ESA at all
