Hi everyone,


My dad is self employed taxi man and is currently in hospital, icu but thankfully he is coming on great!!


The docs say it will be a slow recovery, 6 months or more. Just wondering what benefits would he be entitled to?

He is about 63 years old.


Many thanks,

Your dad can claim either Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credits.


ESA would be payable up to the age of 65 and there is the requirement to attend medicals and work focused interviews. ESA can either be claimed based upon NI contributions alone, based on income or income alone. Pension Credit is based on income.


Given your father's age it may be best to claim Pension Credit.


I wish him a full recovery.

The advice I give in relation to benefits should be viewed as general advice and not specific to your individual claim circumstances. I cannot give specific advice on your claim as I cannot access the claim.
