    ESA & JSA Joint claim?

    ESA & JSA Joint claim? 10th Mar 12 at 12:46 PM

    I have recently become unemployed and have been told I will receive JSA (contribution based).

    My partner will be moving in with me very soon as we are expecting a baby, however she is claiming ESA due to having cystic fibrosis.

    I am very confused regarding the way a joint claim would work in this case, would her ESA have to stop and she become a joint JSA claimant with me or would I have to cease claiming JSA ??

    Has anyone got any experience with a similar situation please ?


    Apologies for any double threads !!
