Just to clarify things - when I said I had more info I meant about the person that I care for. I am looking at claiming that MS is a substantial risk to your mental/physical health if you are found NOT to have limited capability for work (there are also other issues placing you straight into the support group of course).
I joined the benefitsandwork site specifically for more info on ESA - or in particular moving from IB to ESA. I have no doubt that the person concerned will get ESA but I am concerned that they will be placed in the work group rather than the support group.
I have searched online regarding MS and the mental/physical capabaility for work but have not found anything.
On benefitsandwork someone made a forum posting saying that they had successfully claimed this (that if they were found NOT to have limited capability for work then this would affect their mental/physical health) and so they were placed automatically in the support group - but they have Primary/Progressive MS - whereas this person has relapsing/remitting.
I have also downloaded info from this MS site - but I am a little disappointed that there does not seem to be a lot more about claiming that MS is a substantial risk to physical/mental health if NOT found to have limited capability for work. Surely there could then be some basic/template letters made available and further advice on supporting documents from your GP and MS Nurse etc.
