Rapid Reclaim

Is there a limit on Rapid Reclaim for ESA (times a person can make a claim more than once – depending on health)?

    Not that I'm aware of. However, somebody regularly closing a claim and then claiming again multiple times would tend to raise questions. That could result in the claim being sent to the Compliance Team to check before any further payments were made.
    There have been instances of people signing off from ESA when they believe a WCA is due, claiming JSA for a few weeks and then claiming ESA again. The assumed thought process is that they can get the benefits without the hassle.
