I just got my form today, a little ****ed off to say the least as i thought it wouldn't be due for at least another few months.

 

I was put in the support group in September (which was back dated to April, i think) and thought that would be it for a while. After calling DWP they told me that i would not need to send any sick notes in and should receive a form around March or April this year. When i called them this morning that said my review was due 2/01/13 and i should get the form back to them by the end of January.

 

My condition has not changed and frightened that they will stop my money as this is the only income i have.

 

Does anyone know what will happen once i send in my form and if i will be summoned for an examination. Also how long will this take from sending my form in to hearing something from them along with when will they stop my money?

 

Also has anyone else had this form after being put in the support group and NOT had their benefits stopped, what happened and did it take long?

I can't say whether you'll be sent for an examination; but not everyone is. You may find that if you give enough information on the form, you may not need an examination.

thanks for the reply, when the medical assessor came to my house last year i gave him a list of what was wrong alongside other information when he asked me questions.

Even though my condition has not changed, maybe a little worse i think i will use this list again along with filling out as much as i can on the form. I will also speak to my doctor and get a letter from him explaining that my situation has not changed.

Unfortunately it is all repetition. I notice you said this was your only income, do you not qualify for DLA?

It varies depending on which area you live in and how much of a backlog they have at the time. My form was sent off and I heard nothing for about 3 months or so then a letter came to say I'd been put in the Support group. Others have heard back fairly quickly , and either been called for an asessment or told they've been put straight into a group and so don't need an assessment. The more relevant info you put on your form in realtion to the descriptors the better.. It's just a case of having to wait and see what happens next.
