TOPIC: Straight into Support Group with No medical

Straight into Support Group with No medical 4 years 1 month ago #110035

:laugh: After weeks of worry and uncertainty I received my letter from DWP today stating I am in the support group. It has brought to an end of constant worry over this and now means I can get on with my life with my limited mobility and not have this constant worry on my shoulders.

The forums and advice here has helped so much and I am sure by following your guides I have managed to avoid unnecessary hurdles.

Hi dw,

That is good news !!!! :)

Thanks for the kind words regarding B&W.

If you wish to know the recommended length of The SG award before reassessment, (the prognosis) you can ring the telephone number on the letter.

They should have it on-screen.

You could also request copy of the ESA85A medical report for future reference, as this should include the prognosis, and the reasons for placing you in The SG.

This may be useful for future reference, when the time comes for your reassessment.

As a back up, you can request it in writing.

Once you find out what the prognosis is, you should expect to receive a new ESA50 around 8 weeks before the end of that period.

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?

How often will I be reviewed
