Just come across this site whilst searching for answers to ESA and dental care charges. Useful answers. Thank you.

    Sorry, I should say a bit more. I'm trying to find out if my son should pay for dental care if he is on the support related ESR. The guidance only includes income related ESR. It looks like he should pay. Any comments on this?

    He will only be entitled to free NHS treatment if his ESA is Income Related.

    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.
