    Hi,
    Limited capability for work related activity isn't payable for the first 3 months of your claim. It's the same as claiming ESA and being in the Support Group, ESA assessment rate is for the first 13 weeks. Support Group payment is paid from week 14 of the ESA claim. See link and scroll down to waiting period.

    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.
