IMPORTANT Changes To ESA From 30 March 2015

March 17, 2015

Important information from Disability Online, please share widely:

From 30th March 2015  there will be changes to repeat claims for Employment Support Allowance if you are refused Employment Support Allowance after being assessed for capability for work.

Currently you can claim for Employment Support Allowance after 6 months even if your condition hasn’t changed or you haven’t got a new illness from the date of the refusal or you can claim before if your health conditions has got worse or you have an new illness that prevents you from working.

From 30th March 2015 you will not be able to apply after 6 months as this regulation will no longer apply, you can only claim if your illness got considerably worse or you have a new illness that prevents you from working.

You can read the new regulations made by the Department for Work and Pensions here
