Hi, my name is Christaur!

Hi, I'm a support worker and my client has been on ESA and DLA since 2009. It has never been re-assessed and his income is £880 per month and he's really struggling. My question is this, does anyone know if my client can access any other benefits such as disability premiums etc? And if he can, how does he do so? I'd really appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

    How much is his ESA every fortnight? Do they live alone or with others? what DLA award do they currently have?
    Do they have any other income such as pensions?
    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.

    Hi, Poppy1234556.

    His ESA is £282.18 a fortnight. He lives with someone but they're not together and his partner's daughter lives with them. He has no other income.
