Congratulations on the award and thank you for your comments about the guides.

From your previous posts you seem to be in receipt of ESA as well so you may be entitled to one or more of the ESA Premiums dependant on your circumstances. See

ESA Premiums

Hi p,

No, We don't keep a record of your posts, once they are made and approved they remain in the Forum ! :)

If you left click your Mouse/pad on your blue username : purity or anyone else's username, a list of your posts will come up.

To receive an ESA Premium Top-up to your ESA payments you must be entitled to payment of Income Related (IR) ESA and fulfill the other qualifying criteria for that particular : ESA Premiums

If you are in receipt of a PIP Daily Living Award, that may be The Severe Disability Premium. (SDP)

If you were in The Support Group (SG) of ESA the ESA premium may be The Enhanced Disability Premium. (EDP)

You need to contact the DWP and ask them to send you an ESA 3 Financial Assessment Form to assess your entitlement to payment of IR ESA Premiums.

You will need to pass the means test with respect to capital. assets, savings, household income and any hours worked by a partner if you have one.

Asset rule for ESA(IR)

24 hour work rule for ESA(IR)

Even if you fulfil the other qualifying criteria for ESA Premiums, you cannot receive payment of them unless you can also pass the IR ESA means test.
