Hi everyone, I want to share with the whole world my great news.
I only sent my completed ESA50 off on 15th October and today I received a brown envelope from DWP. Now I realised that was in itself good news ie ESA awarded either WRAG or SUPPORT. I had previously worked out that a letter from ATOS would mean a medical!!
I hardly dare open it but braced myself and discovered I had been put into the SUPPORT group. I rang DWP to request ESA85A and asked how long the award is for. The gentleman said 3 YEARS. Amazing!!!!!. I have ME/CFS so I was expecting many problems with the transfer.
I have been a member of this site for a couple of years and can state that without your help I probably wouldnt have received any award. I have read everything you produced and started my ESA50 twelve months ago knowing I would have to be transfered. I did it very slowly & produced the best case I could.
I cant thank you enough.I would be partying if I had the energy.
Thank you again.

Hi Karlo,
thanks for your reply. Yes it does give you hope doesnt it.
I always love reading the success stories and it does prove it can be done.
I worked very hard over 12 months filling in, and changing even tiny details on the PDF form on my laptop. When it was finished and I read it as a whole I was proud of what I had acheived.
Keep at it because hopefully it will be worth it in the end. Good luck for yours, I will watch for your post as to how you got on.
Be lucky,

melady.

Hi Noodles,
thanks for your kind words. I feel like I have won the lottery, the relief is huge. I am Contribution based and would have only received 365 days of WRAG so being put into SUPPORT is fantastic.
I am 59 and will get a small works pension next year so hopefully will be able to survive despite this GOVT doing its best to grind us down.
