I know that many JSA claimants are entitled to a 4 week run on of HB and CTB but hadn't seen anything saying people who were claiming ESA and go straight in to work are too.

 

I've done a search and found a site that says ESA claimants are entitled to the run on here and there it quotes the relevant document as being the A12/2008 circular but I've not been able to find this online, anyone know where it is? Or does anyone know for sure whether ESA claimants are entitled to the 4 week run on of HB and CTB?

Yes claimants are entitled in the same circumstances as jsa claimants - starting work of more than 5 weeks and been on qualifying for 26 weeks or more.

sometimes and not always

 

if you have had 26 weeks continuous receipt of one type of ESA immediately before finding work, then yes

 

however if the 26 weeks is made up of a combination of the 2 types, then in some instances you will qualify and in some you will not

 

the circular can be found here

there are 2 different schemes of extended payment.

 

to allow me to advise on correct scheme, can you confirm whether the ESA is income related or contribution based?

if it has been a mixture of ESA types can you confirm how long on each?

income related all the way through

 

Asking the question in advance of finding work, but not being paid for a month when rent is payable in advance was one of my worries as I live hand to mouth so this run on will be a big help and something less to worry about. Thanks to both of you.

Out of interest, would it make any difference if having been reassessed I went from ESA to JSA which would also be IR. Would the switch mean there was no 26 week of one benefit make me ineligible for the run on or as the two benefits are both IR it would make no difference?

If both are IR and there is no break between the claims (that is, the JSA starts the day after the ESA claim ends) then this will be treated as a single 26 week period of entitlement and you would be fine to get the HBRO.

I agree with Antone.

 

The 2 types of extended payment are as follows: -

 

Income related benefit route

If you are coming off IS, JSA9(ib) or ESA(ir) to start work - then the 26 week period can be made up of any combination of IS, JSA9(ib), JSA© or ESA(ir) as long as there are no breaks in between.

 

Incapacity route

If you are coming off IB, SDA or ESA© to start work - then the 26 week period can be made up of any combination of IB, SDA or ESA© as long as there are no breaks in between.
