    esa and redundancy 8th Jul 17 at 12:34 AM
    Hi
    My husband has been on ESA contributions based and has been placed in the support group for 7 mths now due to a long term illness. He is still employed although not receiving any pay, my question is if his employer pays him off through ill health and offers him a lump sum does this effect his ESA.
    I work so his claim is for himself only.
    Thanks

    No. His CB - ESA is not affected by household income (other than occupational pensions received by the claimant) or capital.

    Would he be eligible for PIP?
