ESA WRAG GROUP TO SUPPORT GROUP AFTER 7 MONTHS 4 years 11 months ago #90038

  • bates2n
Hi I dont know if any of your readers have been following my post -well I had a letter this morning from the dwp a DR3 UN singed letter arrived saying
Dear. .... We have looked again at our decision You have made an appeal against the decision about employment support allowance issued to you on .... The decision dated..... Has been revised in your favour and now you have been placed in the support group –then the rest is just a standard reply letter.
Well it’s been over 7 months since I appealed to be placed from wrag group in to the support group and are very ecstatic like I have won the lottery and then come crashing to earth with a bump as if I forgot to put my numbers on – as after i rand the dwp to find out how long the award is to last a lady at the dwp said that its very likely that I will have to go through the whole process over and over again for as long as I claim esa as it is mandatory to test existing claimants every 6 -12-18-24 months depending the outcome of the decision made by the dwp .
My advice to other people who are claiming or trying to claim esa is to study all the posts and excellent guides by the benefits and works web site down load all there temp plate letters if you have any trouble at all understanding them then contact the team in the forum part as they have all helped me and been very supportive when I was down –(well dam right feeling suicidal at times thanks to the dwp regime) if that fails go down to the local citizen advice bureau as they have specialist benefit advisors who understand better than the average person about benefit matters one last thing always be polite and respectful when sending in anything to the dwp if it’s by letter or by telephone because after I received my pile of information what they had on me going back quite a few years they had absolutely every letter I had ever wrote to the dwp and also comments were jotted down from my telephone conversations to the dwp .
MANY THANKS TO EVERYBODY ON THE TEAM AT “THE BENEFIT AND WORKS GUIDES YOU CAN TRUST” WEB SITE WITHOUT YOU I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS that is for sure no doubt I will need you again over the pip disability allowance change over and probably when I get reassessed thanks again .

Hi
I've put in an appeal for support group, waited 5 weeks up to now.
Well done.
Did you get any extra evidence to send with your appeal, I sent a new drs letter and cab wrote a letter.

Well done.
I too had to go down this route.
I have to go thru it all again next April (18 months in SG)I believe it will be harder next time round tho, from all accounts seen and gleaned. Then of course the lovely PIP to go thru then.
Why the govt want to spend so much money wasting it this way is totally beyond me, unless they are of course hoping that more of us will stick our heads in the oven and bi pass the system.
