TOPIC: ESA and Retirement

ESA and Retirement 2 months 6 days ago #230452

Hi again to everyone
just a small bit of info needed . I am receiving ESA benefit and last month reached 65 years old (eeek!) i received a letter saying my income support will reduce this coming November. What i'd like to know is am i no longer entitled to ESA support due to age and do i just go onto government pension>? There by back to paying full rent etc or do i stay on ESA?
What happens ?
Best regards Ray

Your ESA will stop when you reach State Retirement Age, you should still be eligible for Housing Benefit as a pensioner providing you still meet the means test.
