Can't believe it, I was told in January 2013 that I was being put in the Support Group after a long wait of 5 months. I was on Incapacity and migrated over without a medical. I had a real shock today as I opened the post and saw to my horror yet another ESA50 to fill in. I immediately phoned the DWP and they said my claim had expired on June 27, to be honest she was a complete b****h and told me not to get uppity, even though I wasn't.
The letter said "If you currently receive incapacity benefit, income support or severe disablement allowance" you will be converted to ESA. I am already on it so I don't understand. I was told I had 12 months in the support group on my ESA85. So by rights I should have had until February 2014.
Am sitting here in floods of tears and I don't know what to do or who to call. If I am already on ESA then why is this form seeming to say that this questionnaire is to migrate me over to a benefit I am already on. Please help.
It has not been a year, I filled in my first ESA form around this time last year, so it looks like instead of giving me a a year in the support group from February this year the b*******s have only let me have 5 months.
