hi I am 53 and live with my 53 year old boyfriend who is trying to get esa and pip at the moment, I had to come off jsa due to him claiming esa so he did it for both of us! . I did work until the other day 15 hrs a week as it was all I could do due to my back/knee problems but that's stopped now and waiting for p45 to send to esa to get back the money there taking off esa for working, I get dla mobility and have a car so no money and low rate care on dla so all I get is 85 pounds a mth now that's it and at the moment we get for his esa 69 pounds per week until they change it with p45 proof. what I want to know is if he dose not get the esa or pip after the assement is there anything I can claim I have to more or less look after him but cant get carer for him unless he gets the pip and we can not cope on the little money we are getting at the moment HELPPPP plz
