TOPIC: Greetings and Question(s)

Greetings and Question(s) 6 years 5 months ago #83454

Greetings to you all. I am a recent subscriber as I have just received notice that I am to be transferred from IB to ESA.

I am worried about this as I am probably have one of the older IB claims out there.

I have several questions, which I will split by thread to allow more easy answering and discussion.

I have Asperger's Syndrome (AS). This can make it hard to understand others, or indeed make oneself understood. I was wondering, as AS is probably a defect of the brain, should I list my problems here under the problems with understanding or later under more social issues?

Thanks!

Hi V,

As AS is a mental health issue, you should list any of your resulting limitations that are applicable to the relevant questions in the mental health section of the ESA50, see :

Employment and Support Allowance claims for Mental Health and Learning Difficulties: a guide to the limited capability for work assessment.
