Thread: So confused with benefit rates!

    So confused with benefit rates!

    Hi, new to this forum.

    Me and my other half have to joint claim ESA (due to living together)

    She claims CA for me. I am in the support group.

    Can anyone tell me what money we should be getting? Because we think we are getting the wrong amount but I could do with a second opinion before I tackle the DWP.

    Any advice will be great

    dunno if this is much help Bipmin but my dad is getting CA for my mum who is only on DLA, not ESA and he gets £150 (this is not including her DLA)

    so perhaps around that much, maybe more depending on the severity of your condition and whether your other half has any problems too (both parents have angina).

    Hi Bipmin. Your applicable amount is:

    111.45 + 34.05 + 21.30 + 32.60 = 199.40 per week, excluding any help with mortgaged interest to which you may be entitled.

    Deduct any income you have including any notional income from capital over £6,000 and any deductions for social fund loans, water rates, council tax arrears etc. and you have the amount you should be paid.
