Employment and ESA

I’ve been off sick from work for 14 months now and I am unlikely to return due to the nature of the job. If I hand my notice in will that affect my ESA payments?

    I see from a previous thread that you're in the Support Group/LCWRA, which means your ESA will not be affected if you hand in your notice. However, I wouldn't advise you to do that without first getting some expert advice, just incase you lose out on some money from your employer. 
    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.
