Hi don't know if we should be celebrating ESA assessment form went off a few weeks ago this letter today says please ignore all previous letters ESA entitlement fits our criteria you have been placed in support group it does state they have reviewed change but have increased his ESA by  quite a bit doesn't say anything about having to go for a ftf.so would that mean CARL58 has been awarded just off the ESA forms or shouldn't we count our chickens just yet cos we could do with some good news at min jen

    Sounds to me they've done a Paper Based assessment and placed you in the Support Group.

    You can phone the DWP and ask for the medical report which is called an ESA85A. While your on the phone you can also ask how long you've been placed in the SG.

    Well done.
    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories. 

    You can see the video here.
