Parent failed esa now considering universal credit in family home
Hi, sorry if similar posts exsist i could not find a particular one that matches what i needed answering.
My mum failed an esa medical but is not well (anxiety/weakness etc)cand unfit for work, she cannot possibly get or find a job and we will contest the decision but if that fails we are not sure on further options because i see universal credit may be a help but she lives with me and my brother that are both adults in full time work and pay the rent/c tax and other normal bills, her benefits are money for her (food/small bills (phone)/clothes etc) so if she was to apply for universal credit would she get anything at all and how does me and my brother effect it as obviously she cant live with no money for herself and we cannot afford to help her directly by giving her money so would they give her anything at all to live on? Any and all help apreciated.
P.s. i have tried the calculators and websites and cant find much that directly take into account our personal situation. Thanks
