I am new here.
I am a bit at my wits end as the ESA cant give me a straight answer. I dont need to know down to the nearest penny but just mor eor less how it might work. I am on ESA and DLA. My partner lives in scotland and is not yet on ESA although has just been sent the questionaire. We are talking about him moving in with me so we can support each other more easily. I spoke to the ESA folk and the said I would need a ESA3 form and he would be added onto my ESA. So more or less how will this work...how much will he get roughly. I am expecting us to be worse off overall but would just like to know if it going to be a big drop or a small one. I think due to the nature of his illness it is unlikely he wont get ESA but who knows.
I think my and his DLA will stay the same but I wonder if housing benefit is adjusted as well.
I would be very grateful for any advice.
