    @taffy58 good question to which i'm not sure if I know the answer, you usually only get a p60 when you have taxable income, so based on that then no.
    You should check on the Gov.uk site that you are getting your N.I credits.

    If this is new-style ESA coming to an end after 12 months I think you should be given one as it is taxable income.

    If it was entirely income related ESA that is not taxable so no P45 would be issued.

    Why has the ESA stopped?

    Had to send wife’s payslips in monthly for them to check. Told it stopped after 1year ?. Then told still a live claim credits only and received my P45, asked for explanation and got nothing.

    You must have been getting contribution based which would stop after one year of you are not in the Support Group. That would be taxable, hence the need to issue a P45.

    No, income related that’s why they needed the wife’s payslips. Phoned the job centre they don’t understand what’s happened either.

    For legacy ESA it could be contribution based topped up by income based. However if you were in Support Group contribution based bit would continue indefinitely so you’re right it makes no sense.
