Hi

I’m on the old income ESA based support group, I have read this is due to be migrated over in 2028? But now hearing people of this being done sooner like this year how true is this?

Thank you

    It was announced by the last Government that it would be from Sept 2024 to Dec 2025. Whether that remains now, I have no idea.

    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.

    If you're still in the WRAG for ESA (LCW for UC) then you won't automatically be put into the LCWRA group for UC. If a decision hasn't been made on your current review then you won't need another review, you just wait for that decision to be made. Any decision made will apply to UC anyway. Assessments for both ESA and UC are the same anyway.

    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.
