Hi all
I've been claiming ESA now for 2 years..i found out this time last year it looks like been getting the wrong amount..would anyone here know?
I'm support group and contributions based,
Esa have classed my pension as occupational when it is in fact an invalid pension ( medically discharged from military) so I've been getting the wrong amount each fortnight as I've been told this should be disregarded?.. I've been fighting to get them to take notice..its been phone call after phone call for 12 months and it's still not sorted..can anyone advise 
Many thanks
