How much do you get for ESA?
Mar 8th, 2018 at 10:32am
 
Contact the ESA main customer service team by calling their local-rate 0345 608 8545 phone number or call them for free by dialling their freephone number 0800 169 0310 to discuss your support payments. If you are an existing claimant of the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) benefit.https://www.dnsassociates.co.uk/esa-contact-number-employment-and-support-allowa...  Smiley Smiley Smiley

All DWP phone lines changed to free-to-caller 0800 numbers in December 2017. The numbers can be found on the official GOV.UK website.

Prior to this, DWP used 0800 numbers for helplines for new claims and 0345 numbers for helplines for existing claims. For Universal Credit there was no phone number for new claims as all new claims must be made online.

Prior to 17 March 2014, DWP had used premium rate 0845 numbers for existing claims. These were changed to 0345 numbers on that date. The 0800 numbers for new claims had come into being in 2009 or so.

The site linked by the OP shows an 0843 number in its headline. Just one of many sites that, whether maliciously or by neglect, doesn't give correct numbers for place they refer to.

I cited the example of an outdated 0845 number for a bereavement charity sent to my partner by a government agency. That's neglect.

At the other extreme you have the fraudulent 3rd party connection services that offer to connect you to ebay, amazon etc by dialling 087x or 084x numbers.

The OP's example is an odd hybrid, as it gives both fraudulent and outdated numbers.

It is hard to tell If this is a call connection service that has failed to declare itself as such or whether it is a legitimate business that is trying to be helpful but due to poor research has been tricked into promoting a bunch of fake phone numbers. Other alternatives include they were paid to promote these numbers or the site has been hacked to add that page or those numbers.

Either way, it could lead to people spending a lot more on calls than they should do. Since December 2017, and with very few exceptions, DWP phone numbers are free-to-caller 0800 numbers and are listed in full on the official GOV.UK website.

The Official Page for ESA is here

I would personally be disinclined to phone any other number for any Government Department.

Having had to call Universal Credit up before, you can be on hold for a long time!

Personally I feel that any site promoting any "unofficial" number should be removed, and the correct information provided. It doesn't take a company 2 mins to find the official information, but that may not make them any money...
