I wrote on here for help a couple of weeks ago explaining a bit about my situation..
What it was, was on the 5th of April my ESA was stopped but I didn't find out about it until the 12th, something to do with a 365 day rule. So I rang up and the lady I spoke to said she's said out a form for me so apply for Income Based ESA, well after nearly 2 weeks of waiting for the forms I received them last Tuesday, and it was a questionnaire asking about my Income, and savings. So I filed it in and sent it back.
I currently only get DLA, I'm single and I have no other money coming in. What I'm wanting to know is.. Does my DLA benefits effect my claim for ESA income based? And how long does is take for some kind of decision?
Because they will have only only of received the forms last Wednesday/Thursday, but this morning I noticed I had an ESSA Payment in my bank? It's confused me with it been so quick and I haven't received any kind of letter for them, the money is looking tempting as I've had no money for weeks and now Crisis Loans have stopped I'm unable to get help, so don't really want to spend it in case it's a mistake.
