ESA 6 years 11 months ago #13614

  • KAREN KITSON
I have been receiving ESA since July, and successfully appealed on their decision that I was fit to return to work. My husband has had a phone call today to tell him he must have an interview with jobcentre plus as I am claiming the benefit. Does anyone have experience of this and if so, what is it they are going to ask and want to know? My husband is a full time nursing student and also works part time, having worked for 32 years and I have worked for 30 years until being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis a year ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated, many thanks

A personal adviser will discuss a range of topics with your partner which may include your partner’s current or future job prospects,training to help bring your partner’s work skills up to date, help and advice if your partner is considering moving into work, increasing the number of hours that they already work or changing jobs.

Any of the options your partner discusses with their personal adviser, at the work focused interview, are voluntary. Your benefit may be reduced if, without good cause, your partner does not take part in their work focused interview.
Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
