Re:My new awards 8 years 2 months ago #89252

Many letters give a November date, this seems to be something to do with DWP systems and should not be taken as an indication of when to expect reassessment - you will need to contact DWP and ask for your ESA85a and/or 'Statement of reasons' for this.

When your 365 days of contributary benefit is ended your claim will become income-related. As you are already getting an ir 'top up' you should find that this happens OK. Other people who have another source of household income will find that their payments stop at this stage.

Hi CJ,

As part of your ESA is Income Related, you will not fall under the 365 day entitlement rule.

Therefore you will continue to receive your ESA for as long as you are entitled to Income Related ESA.

You most probably will still have to attend Work Focussed Interviews, (WFI's) though, although you can request that they are carried out over the phone, or ask that they are deferred, although you can not insist on either.

Hi CJ,

Regarding the November date, please see Mrs Hurtyback's comments re: this.

This November date appears on many claimant's award letters, and seems to be for admin purposes only.

Re:My new awards 8 years 1 month ago #89948

I am asking this in behalf of my neighbour. He has been placed in the WRAG (contribution based). His wife is a bit older than him and has been on her pension for about two years and also has her works pension). He was wondering when his ESA stops will he have to get his wife to make a claim for him( to add him to her pension) or will he still be able to claim some JSA. They do have some savings which would preclude him from getting income based ESA.

The por man knows that I am going through hell with my ESA and I think that he thinks I know all the answers because of that!

Justice

I am afraid we don't deal with Pensions, so they will need to get face to face advice on this.

With regard to their claiming JSA, the eligibility rules are substantially the same as those for ESA, and of course, you have to actively seek work in order to receive payments.
