TOPIC: Support Group Award

Support Group Award 4 years 11 months ago #86100

I have just been awarded ESA in the Support Group and found the information and advice you provided invaluable(and also received an increase in Benefit). They asked me the questions as you laid out in your booklet so I was well prepared and I also had my medical recorded incase I needed to appeal and this was no problem.

Your advice made a very stressful situation a little easier and as I have Fibromyalgia you will also hopefully help others with this variable condition.

That is good news, Chris. thank you for letting us know - and for your kind words about this site :)

As an aside, is your username you real name? If so, you might want to think about changing it to something that maintains some anonymity. If so, this will tell you how to go about it

My full name is showing, how do I change it?

I think Chris is referring to the ESA Claim guides in the Members Only area.

Thanks gordon,

Ive looked at the guides but was trying to narrow it down to a particular booklet. Ive been looking at the guides so much I think my mind is in a B & W guide haze, ha.
