hi, after the face to face assesement for IB/ESA transfer I failed the ESA transfer.
Ive been on IB long term contribution based for over 15 years with my problems.
A couple of years ago I had to claim as a couple for my partner due to them becoming unemployed.
Ive been recieving Income Support to top up my IB to around £150 p/w for both of us.
Because of the failed assesemnt Im appealing this and ive been told I will get £111 p/w for both of us.
We are losing Income Support and will be down £40 p/w due to this.
I would like to know if there is another way to be able to claim a means tested allowance as I fear we wont get by on this.

Thanks,
