Hi house77

I just wanted to put your mind at ease, and have pasted you an excerpt from the *Benefits & Work cache on this issue below:

*If you were placed in the work-related activity group and you are challenging the decision because you think you ought to be in the support group, then you will continue to be paid ESA with a work-related activity component throughout the mandatory reconsideration and, if necessary, appeal process. Important! You need to be aware that if you challenge a decision to place you in the WRAG there is always a possibility that your award of ESA may be stopped altogether rather than increased or left the same, although this is rare.

Benefits & Work Website:

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck with your mandatory reconsideration my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Thank you Rosewine.

Yes my mind is at ease now! It's not about the extra money, it's the fact that I feel I should be in the support group with my disabilities. I know am not able to work when for one I got 2 poorly arms that give me both temendious pain, that ache ,hurt so much! Wishing everyone all the best in there appeals! Big hugs👪 and flowers.🌻🌼🌹🌷🌺xx

I can fully understand that it is the sense that we are believed. We know in our own minds that we are not fit to work but the system makes it so difficult for honest people to get the correct benefits. Fingers crossed for you X🌹
