Not posted for a while, but hope all are well x
My son turned 20 in January and as Child Bens and Child Tax Credits ended, we were informed by the Autistic Society to put a claim in for ESA. I am my son's Carer and his Appointee as he also has DLA Rate of HRC and LRM, but unable to manage with his own affairs.
He has Aspergers Syndrome and High Levels of Anxiety, also Asthmatic,where his anxiety can worsen this condition.
So I made a ESA claim for my son, and he was awarded, but for now the Assessment Rate, until they decide what group. I am aware they are behind with these assessments.
Can anyone who have made a claim for ESA with the same disability as my son share their own experience please?
I have provided plenty of medical evidence from the team he was under (CAMHS) etc, but does anyone know if they will accept letters from family friends or even relatives that know my son well?
thanks in advance x
