ESA Appeal

Hi can anybody tell me if it’s true that if appealing an esa decision to go in support group, you won’t be paid esa during appeal period if you have been placed in the ‘capability for work group’ before? Thanks

    I've been trying to get a straight answere for that elsewhere to no avail yet. Hope you get the answere you require good look with your appeal.

    If you've been placed into the WRAG and you're claiming Income related ESA then payments will continue.

    Hi,

    I answered this on one of your other threads. You were claiming Contributions based ESA and this is only paid for 365 days. As you passed that time then you won't be paid while waiting for a Tribunal, unless you qualify for Income related.
