Hi there folks, just wondering about the upcoming change to the ESA WRAG group from April this year.

 

 

As you know I am in N Ireland, been in the WRAG group since June 2013,

no reassessment in all that time and only one WFI in more than three years.

 

 

As I understand,

the new rules only apply to new claims after April 2017,

or are they likely to move the goalposts again,

you just don't know with this government. :mad2:

As I understand it - those already in WRAG aren't affected. It's just new claims. But I have no idea what happens (does anyone?) to people who go from support group to WRAG.
well if you make a new claim that is for ESA not either of the two groups, so shouldn't be affected if your claim started before the date it changes

From the white paper:-

The changes as introduced to the House of Commons on 9th July 2015 would mean that existing claimants, whether in the work-related activity group or the support group, who undergo a work capability assessment after April 2017 and are placed in, or remain in, the work-related activity group, will continue to receive the work-related activity component.
There is also some protection for those who go back to work, but then cannot continue with the work:-

 

We also aim to protect those who move off ESA to try to work. Those who were receiving the component [but] returns to ESA within 12 weeks because they could not cope with work will be able to reclaim ESA and receive the component again
