Hi Everyone !   I am on ESA WRAG for over a year and had to attend a jobcentre interview ever 3 or 4 months but my last interview was 6 months after the previous interview and was told during the interview that I will be seen again in around 6 months time.
I want to know if this is age related because I am in my sixties or is it a change in the rules for the ESA WRAG group.
Reading in this forum it appears that the interval between interviews is much shorter than 6 months.
Thank you all

    Hi,

    It really depends on the work coach you have. Some people have to attend the appointment every couple of months, while others not as often. It's nothing to do with your age. I really wouldn't worry about it and just wait for the letter for your next appointment.
    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.

    Thanks for the reply,
    I was just curious, I thought might have changed the rules but apparently not.
