For individuals living in the UK, who are either ill and can’t work, or disabled and can’t work, there is support provided to you, through the ESA (employment and support allowance). You can receive personalised assistance, and you receive financial support, when you are not able to work. If you would like to learn more about this government assistance program, and find out if and how much you qualify for, you can reach the Employment and Support Allowance contact number: 0843 850 0600, and speak to a customer service agent, to learn what you are going to receive, if you are not able to work.
Who can apply –
Anyone can apply if they are:
– Self employed.
– Employed by another company.
As long as you do not have the means to work, due to your illness or disability, and are not able to make payments for bills you owe, you are going to be able to apply. Not all individuals are going to receive financial assistance, simply because they apply. You do have to meet certain criteria, and must truly be in need of assistance, in order to receive the aid, but as long as you are not able to work due to this illness or injury, you do qualify and can apply for help.
What you will receive –
Each case is going to vary. Guidelines for recipients are:
– Under age 25, for the first 13 weeks, 52.60 pounds.
– For age 25 and older, the first 13 weeks you receive 71.60 pounds.
– For individuals in a group related injury, after 14 weeks, you receive 101 pounds.
– A support group, after 14 weeks, receives 106.50 pounds.
Again, each case is going to vary, and not all individuals who fall into an age group, or under a specific situation, are going to receive the same amount, and not all are going to receive the full amount of the benefit. For this reason, it is best to speak to a customer service agent when you call Employment and Support Allowance contact number: 0843 850 0600, in order to learn what you are eligible for, and to learn how much you are actually going to receive. When you call to speak to an agent, not only do you learn how much you will receive, but also whether or not you are eligible to fall into a certain group or category.
Your eligibility –
If an illness or injury affects your work, you are eligible if:
– You are under a state pension system.
– Are not receiving maternity or statutory sick pay.
– Not receiving jobseeker’s allowance from another source.
Other factors also play a role in the amount you are going to receive, and whether or not you are eligible to receive financial aid. For those who want to learn more, and want to find out if they can apply, you can reach a customer service agent at Employment and Support Allowance customer services number: 0843 850 0600, to discuss your situation, if you are eligible, and if you are, how much you are going to receive from this source of assistance. Due to the fact that there are many people waiting for benefits, you also have to find out if there is a wait list when you apply, and what other forms of financial assistance you can rely on, while you do wait for your benefits to kick in, if you are injured, or ill, and can’t work because of that injury or the illness you are suffering from.
When you take the time to learn about the program, the funding, and how much you can receive, it is going to make it easier on you to find the form of assistance you qualify for, and how much you need when you are not able to work. Both families and individuals can apply, but the amount you receive, will vary with each case that is presented to the government source that is going to provide the funding. Due to the fact that you can’t find all answers online, it is a good idea to call the customer service line at Employment and Support Allowance phone number: 0843 850 0600, and to speak to an agent about your situation. Doing so will help you find the source, and help you get the funding in a shorter period of time as well.
