ESA and Non Dependents in Scotland
In Scotland if a non dependent who works full time and has moved in with a family member who receives the maximum ESA, the person is on pip for disability and unable to work. How much will that person lose in benefits.At that time the DWP assumed she was single. They made the mistake. As the person was already living there. They are now reducing the persons maximum esa to the minimum esa as they said they were informed of the change in circumstances. Is it not just the premium amount she should lose whatever that is in scotland. Are the DWP correct in taking drastic measures. Very worried disabled person. Please reply soon.
