You have passed, you only get a letter from the DWP office dealing with your claim, Atos do not contact you other than to arrange a medical if they think you need one. Any other correspondence will be from the DWP. ESA rates are going up in April as they do each year. Hope that helps.


well done, thats one worry sorted out for you.

kind regards...nannyjenno


Hi, I am really sorry to disappoint you but the letter you received was just a standard one stating amount was changing.I too am in the support group and I also received one last week. Hope your new application goes well Debbie xxx


Hubby has just received one of these as well giving the calculations of how his April "increase" in ESA(I) has been calculated (we're £40+ a week less off than with ESA(C) as he has a pension from the Royal Marines).

The DLA ones should be out soon too.
