Mandatory reconsideration notice confusion

SmedleySmedley Member Posts: 60 Courageous
Good news !! 
The reconsideration has been decided in my favour which now states I am entitled to ESA and now being treated as having limited capacity for work.
What does this mean please ? 
Am I still in support group ?
Will I still have to have a WCA done at home ?

Another letter is on it's way with details of my revised award, what does this mean ? 
I'm very pleased with the outcome but still confused lol
Ty for your help

    Hi,

    There's 2 groups WRAG which is LCW or Support Group which is LCWRA. As you asked for a MR were you previously found fit for work? You won't need an assessment if you've been placed into a group. You can call ESA and ask them which group you've been placed into and this will save confusion.

    I was previously in support group but was placed fit for work following non attendance to a WCA.
    My reasons together with a doctor's letter have led to this reconsideration being found in my favour.
    Thanks for replying so quickly 😀😘
    What do you deduce from that ?

    Ah yes, i think i remember you now. They have most likely accepted your reasons for not attending the assessment and placed you back into the support group. You would still need to have a face 2 face assessment though, unfortunately.

    Thanks so much !! 
    That is what I was confused about !!
    You are worth your weight in gold, as now I can request a home assessment as the docs letter did state that I was unable to leave the house.

    Thanks again !!

    You're very welcome! I'm glad they placed you back into the support Group. Good luck with the assessment xx
