First of all can I just say thank you for all who replied to my earlier post on 'finishing work'. It helped me a great deal to reach my decision to finally take the plunge and finish work. My finish date will be 31st of March, or should that be my beginning date! Either way it will be pretty hard to accept after 42 years working.
Leading on from that, when I do finish, I wish to claim contribution based ESA, for which I think I might be entitled. Although instigating the claim seems fairly straight forward I understand that sometime after I will be asked to fill out a form ESA50 Capability for work questionnaire. I hope that when the time comes I can get some help to complete, however, can anyone advise how I go about getting the medical reports they would like to see. At this time I don't have anything to hand.
Below are some examples extracted from the ESA50
