    This means you've been placed straight into the Support Group with regulations 29/35, which means this...

    there would be a substantial risk to the mental or physical health of any person if the claimant were found not to have limited capability for work/work-related activity”

    Which for you is great news, well done.

      It should tell you on the decision letter how long till your next re-assessment. Normally the max amount of time between re-assessments is 3 years for the support group but they can re-assess you anytime.
