    Can someone claim an smi disregard if they are receiving (or would qualify for ) ESA and does it matter what type of ESA they get or what component they get?

    A customer can be awarded ESA but may not qualify for SMI exemption, if the illness/disability is only physical. ESA is a bit like what incapacity benefit used to be.

    It is independant of any SMI application.
