This is my first post...I am looking for advice regarding being put onto income related esa. I would like to know how much income I need to be in receipt of before my esa is affected. I am renting a property, but I have a mortgaged property that I also rent out and I know that will be regarded as income. I receive £600.00 a month for that property. Do your outgoings get taken into account i.e. the fact that I am paying rent as a private tenant?
I live on my own so do not have a partner with an income.
I have waited 13 months for my tribunal and it has been the most stressful experience ever. It really is enough to break people! I was so pleased when I got the letter to say I had won the tribunal, but now I'm left wondering if it was all worth it as I might not be entitled to the esa due to my income. I feel the government have been so canny changing the IB to income related esa.
I welcome any help.
