support groups and wrag

Postby zaininayah » Tue Feb 11, 2014 10:04 pm

Hi.
I may have got the wrong page.
I need to ask about wrag and support group.
I read so many people having to go to jobcenter. Going to interviews. Being in wrag and support groups.
My question is I have never been asked to do this. I just send my certificate in and that's it.
Am I suppose to be in a group. I don't understand why mine I'd different. Am I doing something wrong?

Can admin please help me put this on the correct page. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've moved you into here with you asking about claiming a benefit :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

The Support Group, WRAG, attending work~focussed interviews at JobCentres, and a host of other things all relate to claiming Employment & Support Allowance (ESA).

Have you had to fill in any forms in relation to being unable to work due to your health conditions/problems??

Oh also fill up forms regarding an assessment but didn't hear anything back. This was in June last year.

If you haven't heard anything about an assessment, being placed in either group etc, it could suggest that your claim is still trundling thru the first stage of the process.

When you filled the first form in, were you receiving something like Income Support or Incapacity Benefit??

No I was working. I got so bad couldn't work. I handed in my notice due to ill health. Worked as a carer. Employer said I could return when I wanted. And that's what I told esa. I also sent them all the emails from employer

As FP said sounds as if your claim is still making its way through the system. Initially they planned to complete assessments within 14 weeks of a claim starting, but they're miles behind now. Some people are waiting up to a year, before being put into either of the 2 groups or being called for a F2F assessment. Keep sending in your sick notes in good time for now and payments will continue. You could try phoning again to see if thye're any nearer a decision on your claim.

Also looking a few months ahead, will you be eligible for income related ESA? ie don't have a partner who works or earns more than 112 approx per week if he does , or any form of household income from an occ pension , or savings less than £6000.

As far as I'm aware I am on income related. Does this mean they will continue to pay my NI. I remember talking to a lady last year who said they will continue to pay my national insurance.
I don't know how it works.
And I've always got a fuzzy confused head. Can someone elaborate and tell me how all this system works. Plz kindly explain as if u would to a child. I'm sorry but seriously I'm am finding it very difficult to absorb information.
