ESA - Support Group 5 years 9 months ago #133200


Hi, I have just received confirmation that I have been put in the Support Group and I am stunned but over the moon. It is a huge relief as they had stopped my ESA on stamp contributions and I wasn't eligible for a means test as my partner had just over the limit allowed. I will admit I spent a long time reading and re-reading the information you provided regarding completing documents and the face to face meetings but it was really worthwhile as I would never been able to do it by myself as I had no idea what information to put down. I have a functional neurological disorder and thinking, putting things into words is very difficult; but your advice got me there and I cannot thank you enough.
Kindest regards

That is great news! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)

If you wish to find out how/why the decision was made and when to expect reassessment, you can contact DWP to do so. This link should be helpful whether or not you had a face2face assessment.
