Background to the ESA
What is the ESA?
On 27 October 2008 Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) replaced Incapacity Benefit and Income Support (on the basis of disability or incapacity for work) for new claimants. Our document relates to how people with Narcolepsy can claim the benefits that they are entitled to. We hope that it will help demystify the situation and give you some help in understanding what is going on and how to fill out your application form.
