TOPIC: esa support group

esa support group 3 months 2 weeks ago #194478

I was placed in the support group up until December 2015 but I'm still in it and getting the money without hearing a thing. I have Fibromyalgia is this now a condition that qualifies for a lifetime award or is it simply a case of them having a back log of cases to reassess?

When were you last assessed?

Did the DWP tell you that your claim was due for reassessment in December 2015?

Your reassessment may have been deferred but it's unlikely to be due to the Fibromyalgia, I doubt very much that this will be on the list of conditions that exempt claimants from being reassessed, when it becomes available later in the year.

Who told you that the award 'ran out' in 2015? ESA awards are indefinite, your current award continues until/unless a future reassessment and decision changes things.
