    transfer from IB to ESA

    Hi all, just a simple question, i've been waiting almost 4 weeks for a decision from the DWP concerning my ATOS so called assessment, if i'm placed in either the WRAG or the support groups do i still retain my current level of IB? I've been in receipt of IB for over 20 years. Any insights would be most welcome.

    You continue to receive the same amount as you're currently on for both only difference is on wrag you get it for 365days then it drops if you're on support group you get it for the amount of time they put you in that group for. I got a call about 7weeks after sent it all back others have waited longer and some less

    Hi there , I am new here , but would like to join in with a reply .
    I migrated from IB to ESA and waited 8 weeks for a reply . I had previously been on IB for 7 years and was put straight into the WRAG without a face to face asessment - so for that I am grateful at least !! Had been dreading that !! However , I have now appealed this decision so I suspect I am now in for another long wait - really does our health no good at all does it ??

    Also just to confirm , I retained my full IB allowance , no change at all - hope that helps a little . Hope you don't have to wait too much longer and the decision is favourable , fingers crossed !!

    Thanks, feel much better now, just hope they put me in either the WRAG or support group, i don't mind because if after 365 days the DWP decide to put me on JSA, they're welcome, as in 393 days i will be receiving my pension. Can't really see anybody employing a knackered old fart for 4 weeks. can you? lol
