Hi all,


I'm currently receiving income based ESA. Today I've received a letter from my employers stating that due to my ill health my terminated (this is not unexpected and in fact is a bit of a relief...) and that I will shortly receive a months wages in lieu of notice plus some accrued holiday pay.


I'm worried now about how this money will affect my ESA. Will my ESA reduced for a time, or stopped completely? Will I have to make a brand new claim and go through yet another torture session with Atos? I've done a great deal of googling and not been able to find out much - the only concrete information is relating to new ESA claims, not existing ones like mine .....


Am hoping that someone else on here been in this situation and can let me know what to expect...

You need to declare the payment but as long as the payment doesn't take you over the savings limit then tere will not be any effect on your IR ESA claim.

Redundancy and holiday pay is treated as capital now.
