Can we get pensioner premium with my ESA?
We have recently been given the distressing news that my husbands c- ESA (support group) has stopped due to him being 66 years and he must apply for either, state pension or pension credit.
Just found out that as a couple with one of us bot being of pension age we cannot get pension credit.
However, I just read somewhere that we could possibly get a pension premium on top of my ESA, I receive c-ESA (support group) and I read that it might be possible to get my husband some kind of pension premium along with my ESA/
We always received our ESA individually. He received his ESA in his name and I received my ESA in my name.
Although the ESA for both of us combined was taken into consideration. I only get £46 per week as my husband was receiving the full amount of £112.21 per week.. Until it stopped Now he is not getting anything due to DWP incompetence of not informing us in time.
Please can you advise as to what we should be getting as when I phoned the DWP they seemed clueless.
Can he get pension premium with my current ESA?
