ESA claim 6 months 23 hours ago #187567

But can't you get both CB ESA and IR ESA at the same time as opposed to someone who has not paid NI in last 2 years and who only gets IR ESA?

You can get both but the ESA(CB) is effectively treated as income and deducted from the ESA(IR), so the ESA(IR) is only payable if the calculated amount is higher than that for the ESA(CB) and it is only the difference that is paid.

Oh I see, learn something new every day on his site! I have all my bits, bank statements, fit notes to send in now. It is a free post address but can I send it special delivery if I choose?

It shouldn't be a problem.

Hi, i have just enveloping my bank statements, fit notes etc and the ESA1 customer statement. The Basildon DWP lady said I should send this customer statement to them with all the mistakes changed with my signature next to the changes. Do you think this is ok to do, the letter said to phone thro with the any info not right or missed on the customer statement (which I tried to do initially but was told Basildon needed to phone me) . The letter acually says to phone throu the info by 30th April and says 'do not return this customer statement'. But that is what Basildon have told me to do. What do you think?

I have till the 30th to get the info to them, I am worried that their system is so slow that my info/docs might not have reached the right department by the 30th. (I heard a message at one point about allowing ten days for a fit note to reach them or something like that).
