Hi last year I was assessed and placed in the support group of ESA (after a long stressful struggle). However I have been sent the form out again and when I called they said I need to do this every 6 months. The form has changed since last time and I’m really worried I’ll be downgraded (even though my health is worse now, not better). I am housebound and completely unable to travel.
What I would like to know from anyone who can help is:
• When u redo the form again do they always then require you to go through the physical assessment again as well?
• Can anyone give me information on how the assessment criteria has changed from Feb last year?
• Has the criteria for being in the support group changed?
• Should I send a GP letter with the form to support me?
I’m really terrified by all this, it was stressful and hard enough to go through all this the first time round. I don’t think I could cope with having to do it every 6 months. I’m so worried.
Thanks for any help you can give xx
