TOPIC:

Affect on joint ESA if 1 person goes into hospital 1 month 2 weeks ago #249939

My partner and I are on a joint ESA claim as we both get disability premiums. It is likely that one of us may have to go into hospital for a few months. We are concerned what will happen about our money as the other person will still be living at home hence requiring money to live. Can you give us any advise on this please?

Although it is often referred to as a joint claim it is not, one of you is the claimant and the other is part of their household.

It should not matter which of you goes into hospital, the ESA payments should continue but the claimant will need to notify the DWP when it happens.
