Disability add on to ESA

Postby gracemountain » Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:50 pm

Has anyone who has been turned down for DLA tried the disability add on to ESA? I have applied for DLA and haven't heard anything but was told you can get the disability add on. Was just wondering if anyone had heard of this? X

Hi Grace

I think what you are talking about is the Severe Disability element of Incapacity Benefit/ Income Support.

As far as I am aware, ESA does not have this element, it changed to the 'support group' category and thats why people in that group are paid at a higher rate.
