Am I still receiving CB ESA?

After being transferred onto ESA in 2017 I received a letter saying that from the 17th of August 2018 I would no longer be receiving CB based ESA.
I then received another letter saying I would still be receiving the same amount of money.
Have I been moved onto income based Esa as I have never had a letter stating that.

    Hello and welcome, your best and first point of call is the DWP and asking what your benefits situation is, what you are claiming and how much your payments are.

    Hi,

    Are you on assessment rate or in the WRAG? Support Group contributions based is paid for as long as you remain in that group, otherwise it's paid for 365 days.

    I was placed in the work related action group.

    I thought so, yes you will have been changed to Income related because of the 365 day rule.
