I'm currntly on ESA in the Support Group. I received one of these ESA 3 (IBR) this morning, it says I am on CB based ESA but they need to look at my claim to decide if I should be getting IR ESA from Feb 2015. So what is the significance of this date as I have always had CB ESA since they switched over from IB, and I'm sure it was earlier than 2015. And now they want me to fill in a 44 page document to see if I may be entitled to extra money. Surely they only have to check their own records to see if I may be entitled to more money by switching over to IR related ESA. Another point of concern by moving to IR ESA is that doesn't any IR related benefit now come under the dreaded UC umbrella ? Is this form compulsory to fill out ? What are the "Premiums" that they mention that I may get if I am on IR ESA ? There are 3 options to tick if I don't want them to reassess me for IR ESA. 1. You had or have a partner and they were or they are working for more than 24 hours a week 2. You have or had more than £16k 3. You had or have a partner who had or have savings over £16k, or together you had or have savings over £16k To be honest I'd rather eat grass than rely on UC, just tonight I was speaking to a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, she is still on basic ESA and this month her UC hasn't been paid !! As if she doesn't have enough to worry about But what the heck, it gets people back to work apparently.
Hello Received one of these ESA3 IBR forms! Have many others received theirs + what's their turn-around time to a decision / payment? Appears, I might be due some arrears as I went straight from IB to ESA © Support Group, without anybody considering ESA (IR) though my HB has the EDP mystery premium included within my P.A. Currently my Prescriptions etc. are considered yearly via HC1 (HC2 cert.) An extra payment would be welcome as it's not easy getting by these days with daily living costs. Regards.
