    This sounds like such a relief for you @DotDot. Have you found out for sure now that's what that money is for? Please let us know if we can do anything else to help  :)

    Thanks again.

    I got a letter to say I was in the support group. Also just been notified today that my Ill Health Retirement pension will start 1st September. How do I calculate if I'll still be entitled to any ESA in September?

    You will need to inform ESA when you start receiving your pension. Up to £85/week is ignored. For every £1 over this amount there's a 50p/week deduction in your ESA.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
