Hi, you need 15 points or more to be able to qualify for any ESA entitlement.

They go on the support group by what points you score on the qualifying questions in realtion to support group.

All :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

CAB will help you with more details.

I'm in the support group, not purely for FM tho, there's depression and anxiety at work as well :shock: :shock: :shock: From what I can remember from my paperwork, it says something along the lines that if, after reconsideration, a decision cannot be overturned/changed in your favour, then it will automatically be passed on to the tribunal stage.

I was originally placed in WRAG as altho I receive a full medical pension, DWP decided that it was the same as partial retirement and that it only applied to my previous employer, so I was capable of doing something else instead. I appealed and was fortunate to have it changed after reconsideration.

Hopefully someone with an atom of common sense will be given your appeal and give you the right decision :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Yes I am hon, was moved into support group after much form filling and assessments but then got yet another 40odd page questionnaire through recently so who knows this time!? It all seems a very sketchy system to me,are you sure you answered the questions properly? Or rather fully? I was soo upset in my first assessment and mainly answered yes and no through the tears and apparently that goes against you, for example..they may ask..Can you pick up a pound coin off the floor?...I said yes, because I could..The part I left out was..Yes I could but not without being in pain stooping/bending etc.. If that makes sense? Had GP reports and all sorts. I'd love to work, really would but days are so unpredictable I'd be sacked after 5 minutes, if you go to appeal it may be worth bringing this up, I did, didn't help that time sadly but they did explain things to me as the decision was found purely because of how things were on the day/and the questions I answered on day of assessment...
Not sure about the automatic tribunal thing, I'd look into that as I had to apply but it might be different now, hope this helps for when you go see CAB x

People may believe they have enough points, but I hear it still depends on how much the examiner wants his/her bonus for putting someone on the 'to work' list.
