I was placed into the ESA support group Last November. My partner has just moved in with me last month. She works 16 hours a week (she dropped from a full time position) to look after me. I have had to re apply for my ESA because of change in our income (ESA is income based). I have been awarded £4.40 a fortnight from £250 so it's a huge loss when partner is only earning £90 per week. Today she received a letter from job centre and has to attend a work based interview next week to help her find a job. We were very confused and rang job centre to find out why she needs to go when she already works. They said because she is only working 16 hours and it's to help her find full time work. We could hit our head against the wall as she has just dropped hours down. I don't know how I'd cope having her work full time again. Can anyone offer advice please as to what we can do and say at the work based interview. I am worried sick thanks guys x
