A friend has lost his higher ESA allowance
hi, I'm sharing my house and life with, as a lodger and friend, a lovely young man 20 yrs old. Because of his autism, ADHD, Nystagmus, and bipolar disorders, he is classed as disabled. He was on JSA where he got both disability allowances, but when we transferred to ESA he lost the higher allowance, and is now poorer by over £30 per week. He doesn't realise the significance of this as he is useless with money. what do we do now?
