    Hi,

    It means you've been placed into the Support Group but the amounts you've put here of £108.95 per week and not support groups rates. May i ask if you're claiming Income related or Contributions based and do you have any deductions from your ESA for anything?

    Support Group rates for Contributions based now are £111.65. Income related Support Group is £128.45 per week (single person)

    ESA decision letters are always very vague and only give the most basic information. Timescales are never added to the letters because you can be re-assessed anytime from 3 months.

    Looks to be self explanationany it just reading the letters a few times to understand their terminology. Well done you can now see what other help is available to you.

    Yes indeed but you've been moved to the support group. It doesn't mean you're automatically entitled to any other benefits though. The only thing it will exclude you from is the benefit cap, if that applied to you when you were in the WRAG. Great news, now you can relax for a while.
