- Change of personal details
- Change of circumstances
- Types of ESA explained
ESA replaced three older benefits: Incapacity Benefit; Income Support paid because of an illness or disability; and Severe Disablement Allowance. New Labour introduced ESA for new claims in 2008 and the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition expanded its scope in 2011.
During peak hours the customer support team at ESA deal with a high volume of calls, you may prefer to call during less popular hours, try again later on, or even contact them via post if the problem is not urgent.
If you’re ill or disabled, ESA offers you:
– financial support if you’re unable to work
– personalised help so that you can work if you’re able to
– You can apply for ESA if you’re employed, self-employed or unemployed.
– You might be transferred to ESA if you’ve been claiming other benefits like Income Support or Incapacity Benefit.
How much ESA you get depends on:
– your circumstances, such as income
– the type of ESA you qualify for
– where you are in the assessment process.
No money is paid for the first week. After that, the basic weekly allowance is £73.10 (the basic amount is lower for claimants under 25). This may be enhanced, depending on the level of disability.
From April 2017, the work-related activity component is no longer available to new claimants — or for reclaims, if more than a certain time has elapsed since the last period of receipt of ESA.
An enhanced disability premium of £15.90 a week may be paid to single people receiving the support component of income-related ESA; for a couple, the rate is £22.85 where one or both partners qualify. In some circumstances, an additional severe disability premium of £62.45 a week may be paid.
Work Capability Assessment
If you claim ESA you must have a Work Capability Assessment. This is to see to what extent your illness or disability affects your ability to work.
You’ll then be placed in one of 2 groups if you’re entitled to ESA:
– work-related activity group, where you’ll have regular interviews with an adviser
– support group, where you don’t have interviews.
Someone wanting to claim ESA will need a medical certificate, i.e. a sick-note, signed by their GP to say that they are not fully fit for work. The new claimant must then contact the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), usually by phone, who will log their claim and usually post them a questionnaire to complete. The completed form must then be sent in the envelope provided to the Health Assessment Advisory Service.
Once a person has submitted a claim for ESA, they will normally be paid ‘assessment rate’ ESA at the same rate (i.e. the Basic Allowance rate given above) they would be paid if they were on Jobseekers Allowance – except for the first week, in which nothing is paid as the DWP considers it “self covered”. At some point in this ‘assessment phase’ – in theory, after thirteen weeks, but, since 2013, very much longer – a Work Capability Assessment will normally be carried out to determine whether the claimant: a) meets the criteria for receiving ESA long-term, or b) does not, in fact, qualify for ESA at all. Each assessment usually takes about an hour and costs the DWP £190.
The ESA50 claim form, together with any other information sent with it by the claimant, will first be read by a qualified healthcare professional employed by the outsourcing firm, who will then decide on whether a face-to-face medical assessment is necessary: some people with severe disabilities can be granted ESA based solely on the documents supplied, if that is clear from the paperwork.
What you’ll need when you make your claim:
You’ll need the following:
- National Insurance number
- medical certificate
- GP’s address and phone number
- home and mobile telephone numbers
- mortgage or landlord details
- council tax bill
- employer’s address and telephone number and dates of employment or last day worked
- bank account details
- details of any other money you are getting, such as benefits or sick pay.
