Hi, I've been placed in the support group for ESA. Will it be backdated? What else should I know?

    The Support Component will be backdated to the 14th week of the claim.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hello @Sayers89 and welcome to our online community.  How are you doing in this heatwave we're having?

    Just to let you know, I deleted a duplicate thread you made asking the same question so all answers can be kept to this one space for you.

    Scope have an Employment and Support Allowance information page you might like to read - did you have anything else in particular you wondered about?
