Sar, I don't know what your abbreviations stand for and I probably can't help either, but maybe other members can answer your question if they know what you are applying for. Please clarify that. I want to see you get some help. Thanks!

Esa is employment support allowance.
And ssp is statutory sick pay.
Many thanks

Is that Social Security Disability? FM sufferers can get disability if they have neck and back pain, along with your other problems. Apply on your own, then when you get denied, go to a lawyer. The lawyers takes your case on a contingent basis. If you don’t get disability they won’t get paid.

Good luck.
