is there anyone out there who knows all about ESA?
I have been awarded ESA - an amount broken down into "living expenses" , "Extra money because you are in the Support Group" and "Personal Health Insurance or work related pension for you" (whatever that might mean!) and "you are not entitled to income-related Employment and Support Allowance" that last bit I do understand.
However, I don't know how often this amount is payable, though I am led to believe it is fortnightly, and is there a time limit on this - I've heard people talking about only receiving benefit for 12 months.
I tried ringing Benefit Centre - continually engaged - please try later. Held for 20 minutes one day and then got cut off!
