I gave up work December 2013 as I couldn't physically do it anymore, I was already in receipt of DLA.
I've been helping my sister with her paperwork as she was diagnosed with a brain tumour and had to give up work, I've sorted her ESA and we've done the forms for PIP.
I suddenly thought should I have claimed ESA, so I rang them and a woman filled in the form. She was a bit patronising and didn't really explain things, and that was that, apart from telling me to get a sick certificate from the 14th, so I'm still none the wiser.
Anyone got any thoughts, the lady helping my sister with her forms seems to think I've left it to long.
