  • I think you can probably start a UC claim or ring up about Contributory ESA (I don’t know if you will be entitled to that receiving SSP). You probably can’t backdate them.

    Any UC claim you make will be a joint claim, so depending how your other halves income depends on if you can claim.
    Use a benefit calculator to work out what you may be entitled to.

         Towards the time at which your SSP finishes you should receive a SSP1 letter from your employers, then you can claim ESA (providing you have the necessary NI contributions).

       You can't claim means tested benefits as a single person.  For UC see:

    Yes, if you have a partner they must be included on your UC claim.

    New style ESA can't be paid at the same time as SSP.
