    contribution based and income based, whats the difference

    Hi
    I am new to the forum
    I was put on the WRAG group last week, my letter says because i am on contribution based and my ESA will stop after 365 days. i phoned them up to ask what the difference was between the 2 and why i was on contribution based, i was told i was on both, so now im even more confused. Will i have to apply for ESA all over again and go back on the assessment rate for 13 weeks and then have to have another medical assessment. i have also got a letter summoning me to the job centre next monday. i am going to appeal this decision and ask to be put in the SG.

    CB ESA lasts for 365 days after which you would have to apply for IR ESA, you are getting both as you must have dependants or extra needs. Your appointment is a WFI ( work focused interview), you must attend, but if you tell them you are appealling they will probably not hassle you too much.
    If you are appealling then you will probably get a decision, either from DWP or a Tribunal, before your 365 days are up.
