My understanding is the time limits on WRAG are dependant on NI contributions. There's more detail in this link...
Get as much supporting evidence from your GP/ psychiatrist/ psychologist and make sure you get someone from Citizens Advice to assist in filling out any forms for the DWP.
Hope this helps and good luck.

If you are in the income based group for ESA currently there is no time limit providing you pass the medical.That however is providing your sister fufils all the conditions stated to be in the WRAG and passes all further assessments. It is also possible ,that if the people dealing with her in the WRAG feel she is in the wrong group they might move her into the support group,I have heard this happen to people.
Unfortunately there is some confusion on this issue that everyone on ESA is time limited,thanks to a 1 million pound letter campaign sent out by the DWP that was apparently sent to all ESA claiminants stating changes in all their entitlements when only a number would be affected ,those on ESA contribution based ,and a scaremongering article in the guardian done for cynical political purposes (yes it isn't only the tories doing it, labour and the socialists are also using disability claimants as political footballs) ,which unsuprisingly worried a lot of people.
