    Hi @veryconfused welcome to the community!

    Unfortunately I am unsure, however members of the community will know and will be in contact with you soon to advise.

    Please let us know if there is anything else that we can help you with! :)

    @veryconfused Just phone the ESA helpline and they will tell you when your next review is most likely to be, even though they can call you in for a review after 3 months of your award.

    It will cause you No issues by asking how long you've been placed in the Support Group for.

    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories.

    @veryconfused If you have recieved a decision letter like mine here you should NOT have to send in anymore Fit notes, sick notes.



    You may have recieved a letter just before your decision was made asking for one. The best way is phone DWP and ask, but I don't think you need to send one. I don't need too.

    There you go all sorted regarding sick/fit notes.... Happy days👍🏻

    Did you ever find out how long you was placed in the Support Group like I mentioned above.

    They can reassess you at anytime for ESA and no, you don't need fit notes when in one of the groups. If this is a recent decision to place you into the Support Group then the letter you received may have been sent before the decision was made. The reminder letters are automatically sent out for the fit notes.

    thanks poppy,its been nearly a year now but I have always sent fit notes in
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    You need to ring ESA because no fit notes are needed once placed into a group.
