Looking for some detail information on applying for contribution based ESA. Wife has a history of illness which is making her to take time off work over the years and the occupational health assessment has asked if she wants to be put on ESA.
Didn’t discuss the details with them as at the time didn’t want to go on it. Now it is getting very bad hence seeing what the financial implication will be.
What will she get as I am in full time employment. Can she get any benefit purely on her own national insurance contribution and will she be allowed to work one or two days.
