Wikipedia

  1. Employment and Support Allowance

    Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) is a United Kingdom welfare payment for adults younger than the State Pension age who are having difficulty finding work because of their long-term medical condition or a disability. It is a basic income-replacement benefit paid in lieu of wages. It is currently being phased out and replaced with Universal Credit for claimants on low incomes, although the contribution-based element remains available.

  1. Employment and Support Allowance

    Employment and Support Allowance is a UK Government State Benefit introduced on 27 October 2008. The benefit replaced Incapacity Benefit, Income Support paid because of an illness or disability and Severe Disablement Allowance. Initially it only replaced new claims and the migration of existing claims did not begin until Spring 2011. The migration process is expected to be finished by March 2014. ESA can be either contributory or income-related. If claimants satisfy national insurance conditions they can claim contributory ESA for up to one year or indefinitely. Income-related ESA is subject to a means test and certain other conditions. If they meet both sets of conditions, they can get contributory ESA topped up with income-related ESA. The main change from Incapacity Benefit is that the old Personal Capability Assessment has been replaced with a Work Capability Assessment, which the government claim will give a better view of the claimant's ability to undertake some form of work. The Department for Work and Pensions contracted Atos Healthcare, a healthcare company part of the global Atos Origin company to undertake medical assessments.
