How to Claim ESA
Applying for Employment and Support Allowance: Visiting the Job Centre to apply for benefits has been a barrier to many people in the past, especially those with mobility concerns. Now the DWP have made it possible to Apply for ESA by phone, which means it’s easier than ever to claim the help you’re entitled to. You can also find answers to many questions such as ‘Can I claim ESA?’ by calling the Employment and Support Allowance Contact Number on 0843 515 9490. At present there is no way to apply for ESA benefits online.
You can apply by post by downloading and completing the ESA Claim form from the DWP: ‘ESA1‘. Simply send the completed application to your local Jobcentre Plus. Please wait 48 hours from the time your application is received by the Job Centre before calling to chase your claim. If you have already done this and you would like an update on the progress of your application you can call the contact number for Existing Claims on 0843 515 9490.
Remember, you can appeal a decision about your Employment and Support Allowance claim if you disagree with it in any way. Call the Appeal Helpline – 0843 515 8650 for more information about the appeals process.
