    Have applied for help with rent council tax from local council, you will need proof of claims and all income and two months of recent bank statements. Plus you can get free dental treatment and eye tests and reduced priced glasses while claiming ESA ring DWP for details also includes your partner.

    You can only claim free NHS prescriptions/eye tests if you claim Income Related ESA. If claiming Contribution based ESA you won't automatically be entitled to this.

    It will depend on your circumstances. Which ESA are you claiming Contribution based or Income Related? Do you live alone or with a partner that works? Does anyone claim Carers Allowance for looking after you?
