I have been off work sick with scleroderma related foot ulcers, and hope to be back at work in about 5 weeks. I am now on half pay. I have checked, and I understand that if I am off work for longer than this, and my work stop paying me, then only then will I be able to claim ESA (or try to make a claim, that is). I understand that DLA can only be applied for if you don't have a job. Is that right? Is there anything else I might be entitled to in my situation? I would be very grateful for any information. Many thanks to you all, and looking forward to the warm weather we have been promised soon!
