Good morning,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to this fantastic site. I have been placed in the support group for 18 months after a face to face assessment. I took all the great advice with me before I walked into that dreaded building and it paid off. I have bipolar 2 and fibromyalgia. I am actually on contribution based ESA, I noticed you get more money if you get the income based ESA. Can anyone advise please?

Thanks :)

If you are entitled to an ESA(IR) top up to your ESA(CB) then you being placed in the Support Group would entitle you to the Enhanced Disability Premium, about £15 more a week.

ESA(IR) is dependant on your household income, your savings and assets, and any hours that your partner works. See

Asset rule for ESA(IR)

24 hour work rule for ESA(IR)
