Hi all,

I had my telephone assessment on 13th June. Called today for a copy of the report and was also told that my claim has been successful, but no group allocated as yet. 

Is this normal? It's my first time claiming ESA but I do get enhanced PIP for both elements.

Thanks for your help.

    For the WCA that makes no sense. They won’t know anything until the decision is  showing on the system. Please be aware that when you ring any DWP department you’re speaking to someone from a call centre, who are often known to give very strange information. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Update... the HCP has recommended me for the LCWWRAG group. No official decision as yet.

    I received an ESA payment of £227.08 today on my usual payment date. My assessment phase was over on 19th June. So I'm figuring that the DM went with the recommendation.
