Incapacity benefit to esa contribution

When I was moved over from incapacity benefit I was put on esa support group contribution based.I have never had income related.Dwp sent a form out to me to fill in which I did.Just wondering if anybody will know because I was never given income related if I would be one of those affected by the mix up.

    It depends on your circumstances at that time. It's impossible to answer your question without knowing all of your details. I'm afraid you'll have to wait for DWP to make a decision and this can take between 12-20 weeks. Once a decision is made they will write to you.
