Hi. Sorry to butt in.

I've received a few letters from the DWP since my assessment and none of them look like decisions. It's more like a list of what money I'll be getting.

May I ask what your one looks like?

Don't know if allowed to post pics on here but basically a letter saying they have looked at my claim again following a recent change and that from 1feb2018 my esa will be £125 week because of a decision on your capability for work and have been placed in support group .....hope that helps you jurph.

Oh no! I'm sorry I made you worry.

I just thought the decision letter would be clear and precise like the pip letters.

That's good anyway .was asking that as you get extra disability with being in support group and your disability guaranteed.you may get backdated money in bank before you get a letter will help you a lot.a lot of people in support group have a chance for pip .it does not effect your esa at all.i would try nothing to lose and nothing gained you may have good chance .if you phone they will send forms out to you 6 weeks to fill in .take care

Congratulations hun, I’m so pleased for you. It’s about time you got the benefit that you truly deserved. It must’ve taken some of the stress off your shoulders. Take care and gentle hugs xx🤗

Thank you it has the extra bit of money will be a great help and has for not having to go job centre etc is a big relief xx

That is wonderful news so pleased for you.x

My MP stopped my ESA assessment in November 17, I am in Support Group supposedly unlimited. Hey presto the y now want to see me on 3rd July. Not happy, will be dragging my feet and have of course MP Informed. I do not trust this, the new Gestapo within the DWP. To make matter worse 4 replied emails have come from 4 seperate bullies with non UK Ethnicity!!! Fuming is a mild description of exactly how I FEEL.
