Hi FEA,

Sorry to hear of your daughter's problems.

Please see : Crisis loans

Where to get advice?

You could phone up and ask for your complaint to be escalated to a Team Leader.

Failing that, see the links below regarding who to complain to.

Please try not to start new threads when you are asking a follow on questions as it makes it very difficult for us to provide accurate and relevant answers.

There are three criteria that a claimant or couple need to meet in order to receive ESA(IR). See the following FAQs

24 hour work rule for ESA(IR)

Asset rule for ESA(IR)

Income rule for ESA(IR)

Hi FEA,

I am assuming that your daughter is in receipt of IRESA, as there is no means test with CESA.

See :

24 hour work rule for ESA(IR)

And the two related links at the bottom of the above page.
