TOPIC: Good News

Good News 4 years 9 months ago #89977

Got the phone call today to say that I had been put into support group. This was without any medical so would like to thank benefits and work forum for such good info. One query the lady on the phone said my money would stay the same. Is this correct. Was under impression that I would receive a little extra for getting into support group from Incapacity Benefit.

Great result and well done.

Just out of curiosity,how long did you have to wait from submitting your ESA 50 form back to ATOS to hearing that great news ?

Congratulations.

It is possible that your IB payments were greater than those you could expect for ESA, you need to wait for a breakdown of how you will be paid before you can see whether it is correct.
