You would be entitled to premiums under certain conditions if you were in receipt of an income-related benefit.

Although you are on contributory ESA it is possible to get an income-related top-up if you are on low income and have few savings (this is joint income/assets if you live with a partner). IN addition, any partner with whom you live must work fewer than 24 hours.

If you think you might qualify for an IR top-up you should contact DWP and ask for an ESA3. This form will collect details of your financial situation.
