    Is ESA going up in April and has anyone had a letter?

    Hi Everyone.

    I had my letter last week to say my DLA is going up in April, but nothing from DWP about ESA.

    I am in CB Support group for ESA. It was renewed last year and I think I am right that if you are in Support, there is no time limit? It did not say on the letter how long I had been placed in Support group for, before having to claim again. I am now panicking that my ESA will stop as I have had no renewal forms and no letter of increase either.

    Has anyone had a letter about ESA rates yet.

    Thanks.

    All ESA awards are open ended, in that they continue until you close your claim or something removes your entitlement (such as a Fit for Work finding on reassessment). Referrals for reassessment of anyone already on ESA were suspended in late January 2014.

    The proposed rates for 2014-15 are on gov.uk - don't spend it all at once (it's not much for ESA, I'm afraid).

    Thanks Flymo.
    Its just that I usually get letters within a day of each other for DLA and ESA.
    I know it will not go up by much, but every little helps I suppose. I was just concerned that I had not had a letter yet. I worry all the time, lol. So being on CB Support group is not time limited? I will just continue to be paid until I am reassessed, is that right?

    I had a letter to tell me ESA was going up but nothing about DLA. This happened last year as well.
