Customer Question

Do you know what, if any, exceptions apply to a reduction in ESA if in receipt of an occupational pension?

If the occupational pension is more than 85 pounds per week, the ESA gets reduced.

The normal exception is if someone was transitionally protected when they transferred from Incapacity Benefit to ESA and their occupational pension payments were ignored immediately before the transfer, or if Incapacity benefit was not reduced due to the person being in receipt of the high rate care component of DLA care.
