Esa3 form

Hello.
Yesterday I received a ESA 3 form stating the above please see attachment (no address due to online safety ect,)

I have been on ESA contribution based ESA since 2013 when I migrated from incapatity benefit.
I am receiving £224.10 per fortnight, I currently live with my parents, I am single, no savings, some one claims carers allowance from 2017.
I get £319.00 every 4 weeks from pip.

Would I be able to get the lowest end of the premium?.

I have filled in the form very easy as no children not no partner I have posted it off today.

Thank you very much.

    Sounds like you might qualify for dp but better people on here to advise you

    Hello @herbie1986   Pleased to meet you welcome. Thank you for joining and sharing.

    I do not know the answer to your question.  Some one from our team or a member of our community will advise.

    Understand benefits are confusing and complex.  I would consider speaking to CAB for all benefit enquiries. They have expertise, knowledge. Good with form filling in always useful.

    Offering guidance, information and advice.

    Hope that helps.

    We are a supportive, friendly community.

    Please ask if we can advise, help with anything some one will know.

    Please take care

    In 2013 premium was 13.65 so X 52x5 quite a large sum of money isn't it
