If you have been working for a couple of years you will probably qualify for contribution ESA which is not means teasted :-D Income based ESA is affected by savings, anything above 6K per annum I think counts as income.

I'm on Income Based. They will count savings (I thought under 16k was ok but could be wrong) and they will count your partner's income if you have one. They won't count your parents income though so if you live at home it's fine.

You've been working there since the year I was born so hopefully after 23/24 years full time you should have enough NI contributions paid :-)

I have heard of cases of people who have worked for years (like 8-10 years) who have either been part-time, or been low-paid, time off to have kids etc, or even a bit of them all - who have been turned down for benefits for not having paid enough NI. Very harsh system for people who have held low-paid jobs, or who have battled health problems for years and worked whenever their health allows if they also live with a partner :nono:
