Cuts to ESA

The date of two planned cuts to Employment and Support Allowance (contributory) has been announced by the DWP. From Spring 2012, ESA in youth will be abolished and Employment and Support Allowance (contributory) will generally be time limited to 12 months (except for those in the support group). Depending on the means test, some clients would then be able to claim Employment and Support Allowance (income related). Starting on 19 September 2011 and running over a 4 week period, the DWP will write to all claimants receiving Employment and Support Allowance (contributory) to advise them that their contribution-based benefit may be limited to 12 months.
