    Support Group is the best outcome.

    "Disability Income Guarantee" is the Enhanced Disability Premium, which is included in all Income Related ESA payments to people in the Support Group.


    This letter says nothing about your entitlement to PIP - if you want to apply for PIP you must go through the full application process for it. There's some helpful PIP information in the sticky PIP thread.
