    Hi @wing940,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you on board.

    I'm sorry to hear about the problems you've been having with ESA. I've moved this discussion to our Ask a Benefits advisor category, where our advisor and other members of the community may be able to help.

    I am sure the benefits advisor will have much more info. RE ESA were you and your wife claiming contribution based ESA or income related. Which support group were you in, if you are in the work related group you only get the ESA for a year I believe. I think people in the support group get it for ever or until they are reassessed! I think you need to speak to the ESA people to find out more details re why the benefit has been stopped.
