ESA after 6 months on sick from work

Postby paulfoel » Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:35 am

Wife has previously been off work for a while. Had full pay then half pay and, if I rememnber correctly, claimed ESA as well. Fortunately, she got redeployed and worked ok for 11 months.

Unfortunately, struggling for last few months. 6 months full pay (yes luckily) is ending soon and it does to half pay for 6 months.

I know she gets half pay PLUS SSP. But isnt SSP only for 28 weeks? So she'll get half plus SSP for just two weeks at the end.

If I remember correctly, can't you then claim for ESA as well when SSP is finished? Do you need to this yourself or does employer sort out?

Does it matter if you claimed previously (it'll be 11 months in work plus 6 months on sick).
