Hi I'm after a bit of advice regarding ESA I've been told I haven't earned enough national insurance credits so I'm not eligible to claim and I also can't get an advance from universal credit. I'm really struggling with only having 20p in my account and my mental health has been affected by all of this. I put in a claim for ESA for my mental health and now I don't know what to do
