Hello Received one of these ESA3 IBR forms! Have many others received theirs + what's their turn-around time to a decision / payment? Appears, I might be due some arrears as I went straight from IB to ESA © Support Group, without anybody considering ESA (IR) though my HB has the EDP mystery premium included within my P.A. Currently my Prescriptions etc. are considered yearly via HC1 (HC2 cert.) An extra payment would be welcome as it's not easy getting by these days with daily living costs. Regards.
Greetings all. A bit concerned about something, and google etc yields no answers... I'm currently on contributory-based ESA- but have had a change in my living situation, and I've been told to fill in an ESA3 form. This is to update them on my change of circumstance, and also because I might qualify for an income-related top up to my ESA. In one section, the form asks 'Do you pay a private landlord...for the place where you live?' and if you tick yes, 'Please tell us their name and address.' I'm concerned about filling in this information, since I don't want to inform my landlord (a small private letting agency technically) that I'm receiving ESA or housing benefit. I'm worried the landlord may discriminate against me, and anyway I would find it very traumatic and stressful to have to discuss my health issues or living situation with them. When I originally claimed ESA, I did the usual phone interview where they ask you about all your details, then send a copy of your statement to you. I don't think they asked me either my landlord's address, or how much rent I was paying, in that interview- but I did inform them I was receiving housing benefit. On the ESA3 form, I have again mentioned that I recieve housing benefit- but they don't ask specifically how much my rent is, or for tenancy agreements (like the housing benefit office at the council would)- which has me worried about where they might go for this information. Don't they need to know how much rent I'm paying / what housing benefit I'm receiving, in order to calculate my entitlement? Does anyone know what they use the landlord's address for? Do I absolutely have to fill it in? Will they write to them- and if so what will they say? Thankyou so much.
