ESA 50 limited capability for work questionnaire 7 years 6 months ago #97740

I wonder if you can help me?

I have a Esa50 limited capability for work questionnaire and wanted to ask do you have to qualify 15 points for the whole form or do you have to get 15 points for each part?

Kind regards

You need a total of 15 points across the whole form to be granted ESA. Access to the Support Group is not points based.

Hi Kingpin

You need to score 15 points in total (combining mental and physical sections) - not 15 points for each part.

The WRAG is points based, you need to score 15 points or more.

To be placed into the Support Group you need to meet one or more of the SG descriptors, see

Qualifying for the Support Group
