      Hi there are a number of age related rules for benefits, once you achieve one of these your benefits increase.

    Hi Tony,

    ESA amounts depend on circumstances and age. There's premiums that are paid depending on circumstances and what other benefits you claim. I'll need more info to be able to help you further. Do you or your partner claim PIP daily living or DLA md/high rate care? Are you on assessment rate ESA or in one of the groups. Once you've answered this, i'll gladly help you further.

      Hi,

      If your partner is in the Support Group then you should be being paid the Enhanced disability premium in with the ESA money. Couples rate for this is £22.85 per week. If not in the Support group then this premium isn't paid. No other premiums are payable for either of you because for SDP you muct both have mid/high rate care DLA or PIP daily living. You can't claim carers allowance for your partner because being on low rate care DLA doesn't qualify anyone to claim this. Hope this helps.

      I'm sure i'm going crazy this evening, i could have sworn i replied to your comment a couple of hours ago. eek This site does act very oddly sometimes. It will most likely appear in a day or 2 lol

      Couples rate ESA is £114.85 per week.

      As your partner is in the WRAG and claimed before April 2017 you get and extra £29.05 per week. This give a total of £143.90 Income Related per week.

      If one of you is under the age of 18 your couples rate will be less than £114.85 per week.

      If you're both over 18 does the partner of the person claiming the ESA work any hours at all each week? Have you had any recent loans that you're currently repaying back? Any pensions? Sorry for all the questions but i can't fully help you without knowing ALL the details because it makes it almost impossible to guess.

      Hi Denise you did reply but because you went in on the original post not a new reply it didn't show your reply, its an IT glitch that can't process the info on top of an older reply, I delete the threads I have answered and only go back with a new reply. The links are not refreshing

      Hi Alexandria,

      I have no idea about that but i did notice that day that the site was extremely slow. A lot of the time it wouldn't load, so i had to keep refreshing.
