You can apply for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) if you have a disability or health condition that affects how much you can work.
You may also be able to get ESA if you cannot or were unable to work while self-isolating or ‘shielding’ because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
ESA gives you:
- money to help with living costs if you’re unable to work
- support to get back into work if you’re able to
You can apply if you’re employed, self-employed or unemployed.
