Hi Gus
At least she has flagged it up and asked for a case manager to look again.
You are right that you would remain on contribution based ESA unless you were moved from support group to work related activity group.  This is because you only get WRAG for 365 days and then your contributions expire.  your con based ESA would be the 109 but you'd have a top up of income related for your wife.  The DWP recently admitted that they had missed several thousand more folk so will take another 18 months to contact everyone.

Well done for making that phone call gus and I'm pleased you were allocated a helpful call handler. I hope it all comes together now. Even if the cogs turn slowly, they now seem to me moving.

I'm back into my can't make phone calls state for an unknown reason so you've done really well.
