Work and work related activities
Hello I really need some advice I have been talking back and forward with universal credit about the work and work related capability I’ve spoken to other organisations too I have severe mental health issues and a doctors note during this time it was never mentioned anything about national insurance contributions even when I looked up the work and work capability I definitely do not have enough insurance credits as I’ve been living in London the last two years doing uni so only had some work however now they have sent me out the application for the new style ESA and when i looked it up it said I needed contributions I’m just getting the regular universal credit at the moment why would they have not mentioned it before now ? Does anyone know can I still apply for the work and work related capability? Thank you
