Hi there, another big thank you. At long last received confirmation I'm in the ESA support group and receiving enhanced rate of PIP on both parts until October 2017. A huge relief and I am sure I would not have been able to do it without your assistance and support.

I would also like to send a big thank you to the very pleasant, kind and understanding nurse who came to my home to conduct the PIP assessment. They have received such bad press that I was shaking with fear and anxiety but she was a lovely lady.

Thank you All

Hi LW,

Thanks for sharing this excellent news !!! :cheer:

We do appreciate your comments regarding B&W.

With regards to your ESA Support Group (SG) Award, you may wish to request the documentation used in coming to The SG decision which could be helpful when the time comes for your next reassessment.

Have a look at one of my previous posts regarding this : Here.

As you are now in The SG if you can pass the means test for payment of Income Related (IR) ESA, you may also be entitled to payment of The Enhanced Disability Premium (EDP) as a top up.

As you have also been awarded The Daily Living Component of PIP, if as above, you are entitled to payment of IR ESA you may also be entitled to The Severe Disability Premium. (SDP)

Further information on IR ESA Premiums can be found on the FAQ below :

There is further information on IR ESA Premiums on another post of mine : Here.

That is great news! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)I am glad to hear that you had a positive experience with the assessor, it is nice to know that there are still some decent people out there.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
