  • (1888PressRelease) January 17, 2016 - London UK : ESA is the out-of-work welfare benefit provided by the UK government to people who are having difficulty finding work because of their long-term illness or disability.

    If someone is ill or disabled to work, ESA provides the financial support. If the degree of the disability is not severe to the extent that one cannot work; then it provides the personalized help to find the suitable work.

    First of all a person with disability or illness needs to find out whether he is eligible or not; for claiming ESA. If the illness or disability of a person affects his ability to work and he is: under State Pension age, not getting Statutory Sick Pay or Statutory Maternity Pay and not getting Jobseeker's Allowance, and had paid enough National Insurance then he can apply for ESA.

    Types of ESA
    There are two types of ESA that one can get.

    Contributory ESA: It's a flat rate benefit not affected by the incomes and savings until the claimant is put in the 'support group. The payment of contributory ESA will be limited to 12 months.

    Income-related ESA: it is a means tested benefit. The means are compared with the savings and an ESA is worked out from this. It can be paid solely or as an addition to contributory ESA. This ESA is not limited and cannot be paid if the savings are 16,000.

    A person has to take an assessment test in order to know which kind he will be getting.

    How to claim
    The easiest way to claim ESA is by contacting authorities telephonically. The documents needed at the time of making the claim are National Insurance number, medical certificate, GP's address and phone number, home and mobile telephone numbers, mortgage or landlord details, council tax bill, employer's address and telephone number and dates of employment or last day worked, bank account details and details of any other money that a person is getting, e.g. benefits or sick pay.
