Hi does anyone know how long it takes to process esa50. My husband has liver and bowel cancer. Also does the extra payment you get start from 1st day of claim or does it start at week 13. Nor quite sure how this works.

I saw you had posted but as yet no answer. You could contact the helpline on 0808 808 00 00 

They will be able to answer or signpost you to someone who can

Good luck
