  1. Hi there - I applied for ESA Benefit and this was given and the start date of my Claim was 2nd FEBRUARY 2018 - I am currently unable to work as I am awaiting a total hip replacement and I have not received a date yet to have the operation done - I sent off The Work Capability Questionnaire Form and today I received a letter asking me to come in for a Work Capability Assessment - Does any know if this Assessment is for them just to decide which Group I will be put in (ie Work Related or Support) or is it to see if I can continue to receive ESA - My health issues are not going to change until I have had my hip replacement - Do they take that into consideration !! Many thanks for any help or advice.
  2. Hi again - another Permitted Work Enquiry .....Do you have to submit your payslips to anyone whilst doing Permitted Work ? if so can you send them by post or do you have to take them to the Job Centre to show them? Just asking as it costs me £8-50 a time to go to the Job Centre on a bus as I dont drive so posting them would be cheaper - Many thanks for any advice any one cane give me.
  3. Many thanks for your reply
  4. Hi - I have applied for ESA Benefit and have sent off my first Sick Note - before applying for ESA I was working for 8 to 10 hours per week part time and was also receiving JSA at a* reduced rate so that the earnings from my part time work and received JSA totalled up to £73-00 PER WEEK - I closed my JSA Claim on 1st February 18 and requested my ESA Claim to start from 2nd February 18 - The Gentleman who was taking my application for ESA over the phone asked what part time work I was doing and if I wanted to continue doing this work when receiving ESA - I said I didn't think it was allowed to do any work whilst receiving a Benefit - He said that there was a rule in place where you can do some part time work whilst on ESA which is called PERMITTED WORK - is this correct ? - I phoned yesterday and they told me I should receive my first ESA payment on 15th February 18 - Can I go back to my part time work straight away now or is there a certain amount of time I have to wait - also how do I go about informing them that I will be doing part time work ? -I have physical ailments which stop me from being able to work full time also suffer from depression - The part time work I was doing was escorting Children with learning and physical disabilities to school in a vehicle with someone else driving - there is no physical work involved for me with this job as I just have to sit in the vehicle with the Children the main reason I did and would like to continue doing this job is that it gets me out of my house for a few hours a week which helps greatly with my depression - Sorry if this is a bit long winded but I dont want to do anything to jeopardise my ESA Benefit or to get into trouble with The DWP - Many thanks for any advice that anyone can give me.
