If I needed to stop working, would I have to go through the ESA process again?
I’ve recently been offered a job which takes me over the permitted work threshold. I really do want to do something and it’s working form home too with all the adjustments I need. The only thing I’m worried about is what if I’m unable to do it and need to go stop. I’m currently on contribution based ESA and I’m the support group. Would I have to go back through all the process again? Any advice greatly appreciated
