TOPIC: IB to ESA

IB to ESA 4 years 10 months ago #84987

Having waited 7 stressful months for a reply to my completion of the esa50 form to migrate from incapacity benefit to employment and support allowance I received a phone call today from dwp to inform me I have been placed in the support group with no medical they made their decision on how I completed the form and additional evidence from gp and my consultant. I cannot begin to describe the relief I feel at the moment. I joined benefit and works last year and cannot thank you enough for the invaluable support you give with your guides and advice long may you continue.
