ib50 6 years 11 months ago #32865

All the new changes are confusing. Am I right in presuming that when my incapacity benefit is up for renewal in Dec 2011, I will be sent an esa50 and hopefully transferred to esa and not ib ?

In theory that's what will happen, but there's plenty of time between now and then for the government to rethink how it will do things, especially if a lot of appeals clog up the system badly.

Thankyou for the prompt reply. I was making sure I had read it right. I am only due to retire 2017 due to the age changes from 1950 to 1955, so I also miss the 2014 date, when they dont bother to change you over. I also receive DLA HRM and LRC. As I understand it, if I am granted esa, it would only be for one year and then JSA (Dont think thats for long ). Getting into the support group is difficult, so would I lose my DLA?

Thanking you in advance

That might be against the law

Don't know, I'm still waiting for my renewal form and mine was due last June (2010). I was calling them every month to see what was going on but they kept moving the date forward, and I was told it would be March this year but still nothing. I don't want to keep ringing them as it is causing more stress but I don't also want to get to a point where they say i'm not entitled to the money I'm getting because they haven't renewed me if you see what I mean. My surname starts with S so maybe I'm lower down the list I don't know. I'm assuming that because they have been moving me on each month they must still be doing that as it flags up when the claim is due to go for renewal, they can't just be ignoring it.

What's the betting that now I've mentioned it here the dreaded brown envelope comes this week.
