ESA support group

If it is decided at the work capability assessment that you have a limited capability for work-related activity, you will be put in the support group of claimants. If you are put in this group, you will not have to take part in work-related activities (although you can volunteer to do so if you want). You will get a higher rate of employment and support allowance (ESA) than claimants who are put in the work-related activity group. If you are getting 'new style' or contributory ESA, it can be paid indefinitely (as long as you continue to meet the qualifying rules and you remain in the support group).
