IB to support group 3 years 3 months ago #117157

I used your guides to fill in my ESA form and I have been transferred from IB to support group, no medical. Thank you very very much.

Hi Pammm,

That is great news! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about this site :) You can phone DWP and ask for the 'prognosis' if you would like to know when to expect reassessment, or you can write to DWP and ask for a copy of the paperwork associated with your claim. The following FAQ should be helpful, even if you did not have a medical.

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?

Thanks for the info - I have a friend who has applied 3 times for copies of her paperwork and never received it so I'm loathe to spend any time and energy in that direction. I did ring the DWP and they said 3 years which is just wonderful.

Indeed, 3 years is the longest award possible!
