TOPIC: ESA support letter

ESA support letter 1 week 11 hours ago #238640

I have been in the ESA support group since it got changed and i got moved over to the aupoort group...
Earlier this year i recieved a letter about my ESA support payment and the occupational pension i recieve..
The DWP want to know the amount i recieve and the amount of annual increase.....
So i sent off the information required and recieved a reply.
It says that no income will be taken off your ESA support allowance and your income.related amount is £xxxx..
Hiwever because you are entitled to contribution based ESA support allowance we will pay you £xxx.

The amounts on this page apply from 20th April 2019 to 29th November 2019...

So what does that last sentence mean from april to november..
Am i due an assessment or another capability form.to complete!

I have tried phoning the DWP for an explanation but its a constant wait all the time and one can only wait so long due to my health....


I look forward to any explanation...

Don't worry about the date in November it is in relation to the payment of the Christmas Bonus and is not connected to your being reassessed except by coincidence.

I don't think so, I think it is just produced annually. ESA is an indefinite award with scheduled reassessment so your current award will remain in payment until a new Decision is made.
