Thankyou Benefits and Work, good result for ESA! 6 years 11 months ago #129084

  • Eilidh Ross
Hi, we just wanted to say a big thankyou to the site for the helpful guides we used to complete the ESA application for my sister. She had been on DLA MRM and HRC plus severe disability allowance for years with a lifetime equivalent award. Since this was agreed however, her situation has sadly deteriorated (we now know she has MS as well as multiple health needs and learning difficulties) but still she was faced with the dreaded ESA form.

We found out today that she has been placed in the Support Group - contributions based ESA. Even better that was with no medical and the money she will receive each week has almost doubled! Amazing and way beyond what we had hoped for. We were dreading a medical and the stress that would put her through.

Please pass on to all involved with the site our thanks and recommendations to anyone in a similar position to read the guides and seek support to complete to forms!

In true DWP style the award letter today was one of the most complicated things to read in itself but with the support of this site we were able to wade through the quagmire and come out the other end.

Thank you!
