TOPIC: ESA when SSP ends

ESA when SSP ends 5 days 2 hours ago #241391

Hello, I'm new here so hope I'm doing this correctly!

The situation is...
Employee signed off sick long term, SSP has ended but employment continues, unsure of how long, currently been off sick since October 2018. Enquirer has partner on a 'good income'. Can enquirer claim ESA and will it be contribution based?

Thanks.
