    HI,

    You say you're already claiming ESA as a couple, is that correct? If so then it will depend which group he's in.

    Support Group couples rate is approximately £177.50 per week. Is that what you're receiving? Is the reason you're asking because you don't think you're receiving the correct amount?

    Hi @jay2468, sorry to hear about your husband. Is there anything else I can do to help?
