Our guide to challenging an ESA decision has more information about this. Before you can appeal you must ask for a ‘mandatory reconsideration’. You will not get any ESA while you are waiting for the mandatory reconsideration decision, you can claim JSA instead. After the DWP make a decision on the mandatory reconsideration, if they do not change their decision you can appeal. Your ESA can be started again while waiting for the appeal to be heard and payments will be backdated to the date your ESA stopped, but if you have been claiming JSA while waiting for the mandatory reconsideration this will have to stop before your ESA can restart.
