Well I've received a letter saying I wont be getting ESA as I have not paid enough contributions. But they still want my P45 and for me to complete the capability to work form, and they might ask me to attend a one of the assessments, and could I keep sending sick certificates so that can keep up my contributions. She also went on to say about I don't qualify because my husband works more than16 hours. I know what your all thinking what's that got to do with anything, I was going for contribution based. I rang BLF helpline very helpful if somewhat bemused at the information I had been given.
