In my previous post I mentioned the fact the council had stopped my housing benefit due to my “ESA having ceased”
According to the dictionary:
come or bring to an end.“the hostilities ceased and normal life was resumed”
synonyms: come to an end, come to a halt, come to a stop, end, halt, stop, conclude,terminate, finish, wind up, draw to a close, be over, come to a standstill;
Now I think from that when I see a letter stating my ESA had ceased, I would be correct in my thinking that my ESA had stopped.
No I and anyone else that had thought that would be wrong. My council’s meaning of the word ceased means changed, which although I was unaware of, doesn’t put me in so much of a tizz as it being stopped.
