The employment and support allowance (ESA) is paid to people with limited capacity of performing work. The allowance is available for people of working age who are not able to work due to disability or illness. The ESA Contact number helps you to contact the ESA in order to find out whether you are eligible for the allowance.
ESA is a UK government state benefit that was established on 27 October 2008. It was established through the merger of Income Support (IS) and Incapacity Benefit (IB). Originally, claimants who remained eligible for the IS, IB and the severe disablement allowance (SDA) continued to get them. However, in 2010, the UK government announced that all these claimants would migrate to the ESA. More information about the history of the ESA is available when you call the ESA phone number.
To determine whether you are eligible for the benefits, you will have to undergo the limited capability for work assessment. You will also have to be between 16 years of age and below the pension age, which 60 for women and 65 for men. You should also not be receiving income support and job seekers allowance. Through calling the ESA Phone Number, you will get more information about the eligibility criteria.
The ESA provides financial assistance to the claimants in case they are not able to work. Claimants who are able to work also get personalized support to resume work. If you are single and under the age of 25 can receive up to £56.80 every week. If you are single and 25 years or older, you can receive up to £71.70 every week. However, you should use the ESA Contact Number to seek information on the exact amount that you are eligible for.
The application process starts with getting a note from your GP confirming that you are not fit for work. You will then be subjected to the work capability assessment (WCA). The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will then determine whether you are eligible for ESA. If you are eligible, you will be placed either on the Support Group or work related activity group. The work related activity group requires you to make a call to the ESA Phone Number to make an appointment with personal advisors to prepare for a return to work. However, the support group does not require a return to work advice.
