How long do I have to request a mandatory reconsideration? Will ESA be paid while a mandatory reconsideration takes place?
ESA has two groups: you will be placed into one of two groups - a support group or a work-related activity group - based on the results of the second test.
Where can I get help with a mandatory reconsideration?
In order to make it harder for claimants who have been found capable of work to challenge a decision about their ESA, mandatory reconsiderations are being introduced from 28 October 2013.
ESA is a single benefit that you can break down into sets of twos.
ESA has two elements: contributory ESA for people who have paid sufficient National Insurance contributions and income-related ESA for those who are on a low income. The Government is starting to replace Income-related ESA with Universal Credit.
