TOPIC: Risks/Benefits of ESA Applications

Risks/Benefits of ESA Applications 1 month 1 week ago #195173

Drax wrote: I'm filling in the ESA1 Form and I'm a little confused. My daughter (for whom I am filling in the form) is a UK national with Right of Abode and so we have ticked the two 'Yes' boxes on page 27 under Part 14.

But then there are questions t the top of page 30 (Part 14) below where it says 'Please answer all of these questions, even if you think they do not apply to you.'

So, do we have to answer these questions, given that we have already specified that my daughter is a UK national with Right of Abode? Because if I tick 'No' to 'Are you an asylum seeker', then none of the questions after that make sense because we have not applied for asylum or anything. Or do we just tick 'No' anyway for all those questions? Especially this question: "Did you or your partner first apply for asylum before 3 April 2000?" We didn't apply for asylum at all, never mind 'first applied'. It's very confusing; can you help please?


The forms quite clear, you must answer the questions even if you think that they do not apply.

Any exertion on her part at all will make her ill for a couple of days as her illness will make her exhausted and also will cause pain for several days afterwards. Basically I have to push her everywhere when we're out of doors...


Just explain why any exertion leaves her ill for a couple of days, what condition causes it and how extreme is the exhaustion.
