Hi,

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to you all for your help filling in my ESA form.
I posted the form on Monday so will just have to wait and see the outcome. Hopefully I will remain in the SG as nothing has changed. It is a great relief to get it sent off.

Hi,

Just looking for a bit of advice. I am currently getting contribution based ESA and in the Support Group. I also get high rate DLA and high rate care. No one gets carer's allowance for me as my husband works full time. His employer has recently said he may have to pay some employees off and we are really concerned. Is there any other help available if this were to happen?

Thank you

Jessica

The best thing to do is to put your information (as it would be if he loses his job) into one of the online benefit calculators, they should give you a good idea about your options. See

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Thank you Gordon, I'll do that. If he one of the unlucky ones the only money we will have coming in is from my ESA and DLA. We have very little savings.

Hi,

I just wanted to let you all know I got a letter yesterday telling me I have been placed in the Support Group with no medical.

Thank you all so much for your help. I know if it was not for your help I could not do this.

Good luck to everyone going through this.

I want to find out how long I have got this award for and what descriptors they used in the decision. How should I word this?

Thank you so much again to you all.
