    Hello @AnnMkerr,

    Welcome to the community! :)

    If you're living together as a couple you can only claim one 'out of work' benefit between you. So you will need to make a joint claim for ESA. Your partner can add you to his existing claim. It might be a good idea to get some further advice about this though. Do you have a local carers centre in your area where you can get some advice?

    Best wishes
    Debbie
