If you’re ill or disabled, Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) can help give you financial support if you’re unable to work. You might be transferred to ESA if you become unfit for work whilst claiming other benefits such as Jobseekers Allowance. The quickest way to apply for Employment and Support Allowance is to contact the Jobcentre by phone to speak to an adviser.
You’ll need the following documents or information ready when you make a claim:
• National Insurance number
• Medical certificate, GP’s name, address and phone number
• Your phone numbers, email and address
• Landlord or mortgage details
• Employers name, address and dates of employment
• Bank account details
• Details of any other benefits you already receive
How Much Benefits You Will Receive
How much ESA you will receive depends on your circumstances, and the type of ESA you qualify for. Following your Work Capability Assessment, you’ll be placed in one of two groups, either the work-related activity group or the support group.
If you’re in the work-related activity group you have been assessed as not well enough to be actively looking for work at the moment but well enough to start preparing for employment. You will have regular interviews with an adviser who can help you with things like job ideas and improving your skills which is important for some people who will be unable to return to their former type of employment due to their health requirements and need support to learn new skills.Your ESA payments can be reduced or stopped if you don’t go to the planned interviews or do the work-related activities as discussed and agreed with your adviser. This reduction can be for up to 4 weeks after you restart the interviews or the activity. If you cannot attend an interview you should contact the Jobcentre and give your ESA adviser as much notice as possible that you are unable to attend. You will need a good reason for missing the interview otherwise your ESA payments may stop.
ESA Contact Number
If you are in the support group you don’t have to go to regular interviews but you can talk to a personal adviser at anytime you need further advice. You’re usually placed in this group if your illness or disability severely limits the type of work you can do. If you’re in the support group and on income-related ESA, you’re also entitled to the Enhanced Disability Premium. Contact the Jobcentre to find out more information and to make sure you are claiming the right benefits for you.
