Not sure I should ask such questions here but it is benefit related and I have an invisible disability.

to get free hours must meet certain requirements.

one, based on our earnings, is we can get if on Income support.

i receive Contribution based ESA support group.

is this classed as IS?

    No, ESA and Income Support is totally different. As indicated from your other thread then because you have a wife that works then you won't be entitled to Income Support or ESA income related top up. Your CB ESA isn't affected by your wife working or savings/capital. 

    I'm not sure what you mean by free hours, free hours for what?

    Apologies poppy123456, I was referring to Childcare. I'm thinking based on that, that we wouldn't be entitled to free hours.
