ESA, or Employment Support Allowance, is a benefit which you can receive if your ability to work is limited by disability or poor health.

You can find out more on our Employment Support Allowance page. If you’d like to determine your eligibility for ESA and other benefits, use our online benefits calculator.

How do I claim Employment Support Allowance?

The quickest method of applying for ESA is by calling the government’s ESA contact number on 0800 055 6688. Visit the official government webpage for Employment and Support Allowance to find out what details you’ll need when making a claim, and to find out about alternative application methods.
