Would like to say a big thank you for your great guides.

I lovely lady who also has the same condtion has me ME (I also have Fibo), helped me fill in my ESA form using your guides.

I have been in then WRAG group for nearly a year and sent in my latetest ESA50 in April, got a letter today to say I have been moved to Support Group for 3 years.

Now just have to get through the Tribunal (awaiting a date) as I appealed being put in WRAG group last time.

May I ask if getting into the support group means I am entitled to apply for anyother benefits - as I am single and also claim DLA and I am being transfered to CB ti IB in June?

A big thanks

So to everyone outthere keep fighting for what you are entitled too.

Thank you.

Congratulations on the award.

Being in the Support Group entitles you to the Enhanced Disability Premium, providing you are also entitled to an ESA(IR) top-up, which will be depend on your personal circumstances and may require you to complete an ESA3 form, I would give it a couple of weeks for the DWP to contact you about this before chasing them up.

As you are now in the Support Group, the 365 limit to the payment of ESA(CB) does not apply and you will not now be transferred to ESA(IR) in June.
