Hi, my name is laurie!
Hi I am confused as for 7 years I've been on benefits due to not being able to work in this time I have qualified for free Dentist and prescriptions I am on a lot of medication but today I received a letter for dental charges it said I did not qualify because I no longer receive ESA income based benefit I didn't know they had changed me to contribution based support group of ESA in November 2017 now I'm really worried as I won't be able to afford my medication or pay to go to dentist i have a live in carer but he doesn't contribute to any thing as he cares for me I get £109.65 a week plus PIP standard mobility and standard care . I just don't understand why my benefit does not qualify me any more I'm single and live separately from my carer but in the same dwelling.
