My partner and I and looking to move into out first house together, but we are having so trouble with how esa works. My partner is the one claiming esa and I work 10 hours a week, so money will obviosuly be deducted from his money. But the big thing im worrying about is how long it will take to process addding me onto his claim as how can they expect us to live off my wage for a long period of time while the claim is reassesed. Anyone know how long these reassessments take? any advice would be great.
