Subject: ESA CHANGES

sorry to give bad news but i am fuming and so upset, don't know what i am going to do.
i will loss nearly 400 a month and my partner doesn't earn that much to cover my 695 mortgage every month, xx

so here it is
People not in the Support Group will receive contribution-based Employment Support Allowance for 365 days. People whose contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance is expected to end may still be able to get income-related Employment and Support Allowance if they are entitled.

People not in the Support Group who have already received contribution-based Employment Support Allowance for 365 days or more when this change is applied will have their benefit stopped immediately. For these people the last day benefit will be paid will be 30 April 2012. They will be contacted from the end of February with more information about what will happen to their claim.

The special contribution conditions that allow people aged between 16 and 20 (or under 25 if in education or training at least 3 months immediately before turning 20) to receive contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance without paying National Insurance contributions will, it is expected, no longer be available for new claimants. This means that once this becomes law, all new claims for contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance will need to satisfy the usual contribution conditions.

I agree but the more letters MPs get the more likely a change will be made. We can see this gov has backed down on quite a few things.

Hi Guys,
Can understand how you feel about it, i did write to my MP about this last year, and he was fully behind the universal credit and making work pay, a lot of MP's are symptathetic, but they have been told to throw their weight behing the government. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
