Can we apply for ESA on daughter's behalf now?
My daughter is 17. She is in a special school where she will remain until she is 19 years old. It is hoped she will then go to a residential college full-time for 2-3 years. Can we apply for ESA on her behalf NOW ?(bearing in mind we would then be giving up our entitlement to child benefit and our tax credits could be affected). She is on the highest rate of PIP for mobility and care.
