TOPIC: ESA support group cb income

ESA support group cb income 4 months 2 days ago #203508

Good evening,

Could you please let me know what other income, if any, affects the amount of ESA I may receive when placed in the ESA support group contributions based. I'm aware of occupational pension, however is there anything else ? Am I correct in thinking that this is non means tested also?

Thank you for all your support and advice

Kind regards

Gg

Many Thanks

It's only pension income, but the definition of pension is quite wide so things like Health Insurance payments can in some circumstances also be include.

If you are only receiving Contribution Based ESA then other income, savings and a partner working will not effect your payments.

Thanks Gordon,

Am I correct in understanding then that child maintence for my son would not be counted as income?

Cheers Gg

No it isn't if you are receiving ESA(CB) only.
