Just wondered if anyone could help as to regards timelines? I am currently on Incapacity Benefit and received the dreaded ESA forms to complete and return by 16th April this year. I was going to be a little late with them so I rang and let them know they were going to be late (they said as I had rung this was OK) and they were completed (by the CAB) and posted off a couple of days late. I requested a home visit as the medicals were being carried out about a 45minute drive away (too much for me).
I keep watching out for them to come through the post with a date for the medical but have heard nothing so far.
How long does it take from receiving the completed forms to sending out a response?
SUCH a worrying time!
