TOPIC: ESA WRAG cut in April 2017 - "new" claims.

ESA WRAG cut in April 2017 - "new" claims. 9 months 2 weeks ago #175447

Last year, when the £30 p.w. cut for new ESA WRAG claimants was announced it was left undecided whether they would apply to people being transferred from other benefits or being reassessed as no longer in the Support Group.

Does anyone know if these matters have been decided yet?

The change only applies to claimants who make a new claim from ESA from the beginning of April next year. It does not apply to claimants who are already in receipt of ESA. whether they were transferred to ESA or move group.
