Statistically, your chances of being put in the Support Group diminish if you are sent for a face to face assessment.
However we have had many members who have been put into the support group,after a face to face.
One member posted such a scenario, after having a face to face that lasted just a few minutes.
As for you your other comments, there does seem to be a trend of putting claimants straight into WRAG, we can only wonder, as to the the motives behind this.

Thanks for that. I will ring them and request a report. Maybe send a back up letter too?
Technically going by their own descriptors I might have got into the support group due to my weekly incontinent issues, but colour me a coward but I'm too scared to fight it or rock the boat as I know I might loose what I have got, and as I can't get an appointment with my GP until the 15th of Sept and as the decision was made on the 23rd of last month I think I'll have to leave it.
I suspect they've only given me a few months or so until the whole flaming thing starts up again anyway, and next time I may fight it more. To be honest I think I'm still in shock.
As to the WFI well coming to me is out of the question as the place is a right mess and as I live in small bedsit there's absolutely nowhere to sit.
If they insist I attend a face to face of course I will, but I'll have to make It clear It's probably going to put undue strain on my pelvic area when my pain is at It's worst.
Thing Is as I stated on my form my condition is variable and I do have good days and bad days, but I never know in advance when they're likely to be sadly.
I'm highly suspect of this sudden rush of people like myself getting passed without a medical as well. Maybe It's to make the figures look more 'balanced' in the public eye after all the bad publicity in the press, or maybe they're snowed under and so are letting some through now only to fail them later down the line.
Lets face It they'll have plenty of opportunities to do so with the way the whole things set up. That and they must know that many claimants like myself being contributions based that they don't have long to go till we get thrown off anyway.

Thanks. I hope I get somebody who's understanding of my situation. I suppose I can get a letter from my GP to back what I'm saying about my pain issues and having to attend If need.
If there's anybody else on here who's attend these things I'd love to hear how they've got on, especially If they've been allowed to do them over the phone.

Please remember, even though they can compel you to have WFI's, and to get involved in Work Related Activity, ( WRA ).
They CANNOT compel you to seek, or take up employment, even though they may well try and exert pressure on you, to do just that.

Oh great, So apart from talking though options with an advisor what kind of work related activities can they make me do then?
