I had been in the support group for ESA for several months in fact thinking about it about 2 years. In their wisdom (I am appealling) I was moved from the support group into the work related group. As you know in May the law changed to say that you could only receive money if you are receiving contribution based ESA for 12 months if you are in the work related group.
This morning I rang the DWP... If I had only just gone into the work related group surely I should receive ESA for 12 months before they stop it... they can't take into considerating the previous 2 years if that was paid whilst in the support group can they? I'm now sitting by the phone waiting for them to ring back.
I really need this money to afford food/petrol and clothes for myself and my two sons hence I am looking at the situation from every angle.
Also the doctor who moved me to work related group saw me again 2 weeks later with regard my dla and decided I should remain in high mobility and medium care - so how does this compare with not being in the support group for ESA?? I can't even wash my own hair at the moment but they want me to work?
