TOPIC: ESA3 ?

ESA3 ? 2 years 7 months ago #83844

I have been placed in the support group and have just received an ESA3 form. I have no idea what this is ? do I have to re apply and go through it all again ?

From comments elsewhere, an ESA3 is issued to ESA claimants who may qualify for ESA(IR) as a top up to their ESA(CB) due to low income.

Hope this explains it.

If it wasnt for this site i would have been in a pickle so thank you. I just dont know what an esa3 form is. Im very worried. I dont know what a top up is and fear they may stop all my benefits.

A 'top up' means that they think you might be entitled to some extra money :)

A DS1500 is for claimants who are terminally ill and have a life expectancy of less than six months, if this is not relevent to you, then you should ignore it.

The ESA3 form covers a change of circumstances, usually with regard to claiming ESA(IR), either as a replacement for ESA(CB) or as a top-up, typically you need to complete the section related to your income, assets, and what your partner does.

If in doubt, phone your local DWP office to find out why it has been sent.
