Sorry to ask, but there is a world of experience on here,so here goes.
Im going to be medically discharged 6 Dec and ive been told my ability to work again will be pretty much zero. I had never claimed a penny in my life until i got ms then i was told to apply for PIP which i did and was awarded standard rate for both for 4 years which i was happy with others told me i should have contested it but im ok with that award at the moment.
When im discharged ill receive an army pension and a lump sum as well as PIP, my question is and i feel bad asking but am i entitled to ESA as someone told me i was, ive no idea what it entails how much it is or anything else.
After most of my life being in the Army and being well paid and not being able to work anymore the thought of being retired at 52 scares me,and i know im very lucky to be able to draw on a pension at that age and receive a lump sum is more than most but i just need to know if there is anything else i will be alowed to claim.
Best wishes and thanks in advance for any info.
