    Hi nerys

    You can re-qualify for contributory ESA if you continue to have a limited capability for work and are then also assessed as having limited capability for work related activity (i.e. placed in the support Group). See the Scope factsheet here for more info on these two things.

    My advice would be to continue with the assessment as this will have to be done and could lead to you re-qualifying. If you are successful in getting into the Support Group and then need further advice please let us know.
