ESA - Why was I not transferred from CB to IB and sent EDP form?

Hi

I found out about EDP last week.

My SW phoned DWP and they said that 'I'm not entitled to EDP because I'm on CB ESA but they would send a claim form for IR ESA for me to apply. (I assume I can then claim EDP?)

Why was I put in CB support group and not IR support group? If they had put me on IR support group I would have an extra £10,000 from EDP by now.

Hi Lon098,
The CAB ( citizens advice bureau) can help you with benefit queries.
Good luck
