    Hi,

    As you were previously placed into the WRAG you will only receive Support Group component from the time you were placed into the Support Group. You won't receive it from 2012. The difference between WRAG and Support group will depend on circumstances. If you're not claiming Enhanced daily living PIP or high rate care DLA then the difference will be approx £25 per week.
