SSP to ESA
Wonder if anyone can help , My husband started work last September in a new job after being made redundant , he ended up on SSP after having a nervous breakdown , he had been working for the new company for 4 weeks! sadly family losses and being made redundant from his previous job caused him to be very ill. My question is he hasn't heard from the company, they have carried on paying SSP since last September, however last week we were told he now has cancer and has some hard treatment ahead. What happens if the company take him to SSP 26 weeks, do they inform him to claim ESA ? or does he claim now . He won't telephone the company as the boss was horrendous to him when he took in his sicknote and made light of his depression.( they don't know he has cancer as we have only just got the results)- thank you
