It is with sad regret that the DWP have called me a knackered old fart and as such have put me in the support group for two years
I had my medical on the 04th of April 2016 (Monday) and although it was too soon really, I thought that I would give the DWP a phone just to see if anything had been done.
I was told that it was approved on a Saturday of all days and will reflect in my next payment.
I am chuffed as hell to be included in the support group as I was expecting the work related group so this is a massive bonus as obviously the support group get paid more money than the work related.
I was signed off in December 2014 so I have approx 55 weeks of back pay to come to me, so a whopping 2 grand.
So there is hope out there not all medicals end up zero rated.
