After 12 months
HI, hoping someone can offer assistance and help control my anxiety. I have been on ESA since May due to depression and severe anxiety. I had t quit work. I was assessed for Universal Credit and whilst they agreed I ws unfit for work till end of this year, I was not entitled to any UC due to my wife earning (not a huge amount, but we have learnt to cope on one salary) anyway, I realise after a year I will no longer receive ESA payments, based on my current state and ongoing treatment, returning to work that soon is very slim. Question (sorry for taking so long) after the 12 months, am I still entitled to claim prescriptions etc? Money is tight and hoping I am not expected to have to pay for medication with less money coming in. Any advice would be appreciated thanks again
