TOPIC: ESA SG at review and DLA indefinately

ESA SG at review and DLA indefinately 3 years 11 months ago #112437

Hello,

I just wanted to add my good news to the forum.

I have ME/CFS and over the past few months I've had to renew both my ESA and DLA.

My condition not having changed much in the last 2 1/2 years, I was moved to the support group from WRAG. I am on CB ESA, so this means I am being paid again!

I was intially given a year's award of DLA; HRM and MRC. I've recently renewed and my award has been kept the same, but this time I have been awarded DLA indefinately! I know I'll have to deal with PIP at some point, but it is a relief to know I've got DLA for the longest time possible.

The other thing to add is that I didn't have to attend a medical for either ESA or DLA, which was a real relief, and because I've got DLA HRM I won't have to go to a face to face assessment for a blue badge either.

Thank you so much for the guides, they must take so much time and effort to prepare, but they have been so valuable to me and made a stressful process easier and more straightforward.
