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 Im really worried Ill 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?
Im really terrified by all this, it was stressful and hard enough to go through all this the first time round. I dont think I could cope with having to do it every 6 months. Im so worried.
Thanks for any help you can give xx
