Would I qualify for the ESA.
Hello everyone I hope you are all keeping well and safe, I would kindly like to ask I put in my application for ESA just before April I phoned today to ask how the application was going, I was informed that it had been picked up but due to the current situation they were running behind with the process of applications. The man I spoke with told me to make an account and I would be able to see my national insurance contributions over the last three years which he stated was what they take into account with ESA from 2017-2018- 2018- 2019- 2019- 2020, I have no gaps in these years however the amounts I have paid seem small just approx £890- £580- £ 650 over the three years will this matter in there decision. Also does anyone know if I am entitled would the money be back dated from the date they received my application, questions I know I should have asked when I spoke with them today, however my head was like mince what with trying to chase up my review with PIP. Thanks to all for your valuable time. Hope you all have a great evening. Thanks.
