TOPIC: What happens to your partner?

What happens to your partner? 7 years 11 months ago #34224

Bit of a bizarre question but in this crazy world it actually makes sense.

I have a joint claim for ESA with my wife, she has been called in for a WFI (previous post), she is disabled (receives DLA MRC/HRM) and has not worked for at least 15 years because of it.

As it is a joint claim can my wife be assessed for work, in other words could she be sent an ESA50 etc.

Thanks

Stephen

If it is you that is claiming the ESA, with your claim including her as your wife/partner, then she does not have to be assessed for work, although she can be obliged to attend WFIs unless she is in the support group in her own right.
