The 365 day rule doesn't apply if you're in the support group, so you should continue to receive ESA at the higher rate until you're re-assessed , which can vary in time span.

Well done for getting the support group, you're part of an increasingly small club !

How great to know there are few people receiving what they should without the distress and pain that most are having to go through - if only all gp's and ATOS would understand this terrible illness - well done you X
