Thanks folk for all the good wishes, still haven't got the official letter just going on what the work interview assessor lady said !
Fibrocomfort , can't remember how long it was until I got the results of my DLA application but would guess at 3-4 weeks which I thought wasn't too bad given the Department say's it can take up until 8-9 weeks for them to process things.
FP I actually took out the full membership of the site which was £19.95 for 12 months as I had the 2 forms to fill out almost at the same time. There was a reduced price of £15.95 for a full 12 month membership on the site for a while not sure if still applicable. I was then able to download the full members guides to tthe various different benefits . The way I looked at it was it was £20 well spent if it helped me get either of the awards I was trying for but it also had guides for appeals as well which I thought was a good fall back if it didn't go as well as I hoped
Thanks for my
Flash , your right I do love them , the expression on thier faces are really funny and of total surprise a bit like I was when told I had been put in the support group. It is nice to be on the side of some good news for a change .
Quick query to those that know about these sort of things.
I was claiming ESA at the beginning before group decision through the contributions route which I know if you get into WRAG only lasts for 12 months. Am I right in thinking that by being put into the support group it will still be through the contributions route and pensions /OH money is not considered and will be for the timeframe decided by the decisionmaker which in my case is approx 18months ?
Still find the whole thing a little bit confusing .
Good luck to anyone else having to make a claim , at least my experience is an example that sometimes it does work !
