    ESA help! 14th May 19 at 9:54 PM
    Hi there,

    I am currently receiving income-related ESA:
    Living expenses (73.10)
    Extra money because of Disability Income Guarantee (16.80)
    Support group (38.55)
    Total (128.45)

    However, I'm hoping to move in with my partner who works meaning it's likely that my income related ESA may stop (I think?).

    I had to finish work May 2017 and worked full time earning over 250 weekly.. Am I eligible for new style ESA?
    If I am eligible, will be current ESA stop whilst it's being assessed?

    Appreciate your time, thank you

    Bit confused hear after reading your last thread from 11th May this year !

    Hi all,
    I wondered whether someone could help.
    My partner is currently receiving Income-related ESA in the support group (500 monthly) and is in the process for applying for PIP due to mental health.


    I am currently on low income however am due to start a job paying 25k.
    We want to move in together to private renting as it makes logical sense due to situational factors.


    I wanted to know how this would work out financially as I have read a few things suggesting he may lose his ESA if we move in together, even though I'm not really in a position to support us both. I have done online calculators and if they're correct, he will only be entitled to around 300 a month (UC + PIP)?? Meaning I won't have any money towards the tenancy.

    I wondered if anyone was in a similar situation or had advice regarding this?
    Thanks!
