ESA phone number
Arguably the most vital of all payments made by the UK government, the ESA contact number is in constant demand from people who need to chat to a member of their helpline team about the benefit. Estimates show that thousands of people dial the number each and every day for a variety of different reasons.
Employment and Support Allowance is so important as it is the main welfare scheme aimed at those who are unemployed and are in not in a fit enough mental or physical state to work. With people largely dependent on the funds from the scheme, the ESA phone number is the main point of contact with the DWP on the matter.
In light of recent clampdowns by the government, issues around ESA have become even more pressing. Many believe that the majority of calls made to the ESA number are done in order to log some form of issue with payment or to appeal a decision made by the DWP. Thankfully, the ESA helpline staff are always willing to do everything within their power to help the caller, regardless of their unique circumstances.
As with every aspect of the DWP, there have been moves to try and replace the ESA phone number with online support portals. Although e-mail correspondence and FAQs certain have their place, most experts agree that they do not quite offer the same level of assistance as a contact agent. It is for this reason that we advise anyone with an issue to get in touch with the ESA contact number rather than by any other method.
