ESA & dismissal due to ill health

zsrzsr Member Posts: 9 Listener
Hi everyone, I am currently on contribution based ESA and I am in the support group. I have passed my assessment the other month and was deemed not fit for work and switched from work to support group. I have been off sick since Sept16, recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia & my employer is dismissing me due to ill health. 
Will I still receive my ESA benefit once my employer has terminated my contract? I am aware I need to inform the DWP once my documents from my employer come through. I was just wondering what will happen to my ESA money? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you.
