    Hi,

    It's means you can't be found fit for work because you've had a paper based assessment. As you're already in the Support Group you could either remain in that group or be placed into the WRAG. Ring DWP to ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report. A report is still written whether you have a face to face or paper based assessment.  Good luck.

    I sent letters from my GP and consultant ..My consultant said that I'm the worst case of my illness she has seen in her career as a Rheumatologist consultant.
    surely I should still remain in the support group.

    No one can answer that question i'm afraid. You'll need to wait for a decision to be made.

    ESA85 medical report. Or just ask for a copy of the assessment report, they'll know what you're talking about.

    asked the ESA if I could have a copy of the assessment report and the very considerate human being on the phone said he would send the assessment report to me..He also kindly said that it had said on it that I was not fit for any work related activities and the prognosis was that my chronic conditions weren't going to get better in the near future .
