    Can someone explain what Work Related Activity Group means

    I'm at an age when we had sick-leave then incapacity benefit/income support. I keep reading about Work Related Activity Group of ESA, what is it? is it some kind of job-club for the disabled?
    I imagine I'll be called in for whatever they do & apart from understanding ATOS have to make a profit and are ###### useless I haven't got a clue what any of the jargon means.

    Yes, it can be, for those they determine can work, & should work. It is like a job club, to get you back to work. There is another group called the Support Group, for those deemed too sick od disabled to work.

    The Job Centre interview you and offer advice and support to assist you to get off ESA and back into work.
