I'm interested as to where the notion of 2 or 3 year limits on ESA support group claims has come from - scouring through the Benefits & Work ESA guidance, there are no fixed terms stated in reference to these claims being reviewed:
It is intended that claimants in the WRAG will have their claim reviewed
annually, those in the support group will also be reviewed, though probably less
Claimants in the support group may
have their eligibility reassessed from time to time.
Support group claimants will not be obliged to meet any further conditions, such as
attending interviews, in order to continue receiving the support component, although
their continued entitlement may be reviewed periodically.
So is the 2/3 year thing an 'urban myth'?? Or have I missed something really obvious, in which case I'll whop myself with my own Flyswatter....
