    Hi and welcome to the community 

    If they have offered notice then they are terminating the contract not you , it may be medical dismissal 

    Either way you will still be eligible to apply for benefits If the reason you leave is due to ill health 

    You can apply for new style esa if you have paid enough ni contributions in tax years 2018 to 2020

    You can apply 3 months in advance of leaving work but you won't get any money till earnings end 


    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will
