Hi as I have seen a few posts regarding peoples concern with regard to claiming ESA I thought it would be useful to share some surprising news. I am currently appealing ESA after a medical and being placed into the WRAG ( work related activity group), this appeal ahs been adjourned once, cancelled once and now being held on the 24th of this month.
Today I have had a letter from DWP to say that due to a change from the end of December I have been placed into the Support Group. No medical no new information and no contact from me. I had been told that I was due another medical assessment and had completed another form for the medical which was done early in November. So I will assume that the change was with regard to a reassessment on the basis of the last questions.
What I find surprising is that the information provided on the questionnair in November was the same as the previous medical questionnair, well as far as I can recollect. No new medical evidence or anything like that. My hope is that the reveiws that have been occurring have influenced the policy makers and a more realistic appraisal is occurring for claiments.
I just wanted of offer some reassurance to those concerned with claiming that it may take a while but you will be listened to and given the support you need.
