Hi I’m applying for new esa. 

I’m enquiring about national insurance contributions. 

I’ve worked for the tax years  2021-2022. 2022-23 

Five of weeks 21-22 I earned less then £120 due to maternity pay ending and it was kit days. Will I still qualify?

thanks

    All you can do is wait for them to make a decision. Once it’s made you will receive a decision letter. 


    Have you checked entitlement to Universal Credit? It’s means tested so if you live with a partner you will need to claim as a couple and your joint circumstances will be taken into consideration. If you have savings/capital of more than £16,000 you’re excluded from claiming. Use a benefits calculator to check entitlement. https://www.entitledto.co.uk/benefits-calculator
    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.

    • Second contribution condition - in both of the last two complete tax years, you must have paid or been credited with, Class 1 or 2 contributions on earnings of at least 50 times the lower earnings limit.

    With this contribution is it that you had to earn more then £6000 in 21/22 (50 x £120) 

    then more then £6150 for 22/23 (50 x £123)
