Does anyone if income support is still a thing? I've used the benefits calculator, and gov.uk says I might be entitled to it, yet my partner was getting it but then moved on to ESA, and now I am very confused. Calling them tomorrow, but I'd like some feedback just now, if y'all don't mind? :(:scratcheshead:

Thanks. IF that is the case, the government need to update their shitty website. Last time I was on ESA they pushed me to look for full time work under threat of losing my benefit, this time round I still have my illness plus I'm a full time carer for my partner, so it just isn't an option to apply for it. Oh well.
