How much is Employment Support Allowance?

All about money
Simple question - how much is Employment Support Allowance? I know there are various rates but everything I've seen suggests that my partner's income will halve if and when he has ESA awarded..... which will send us right to the breadline.
I'm sure I remember someone telling me that our income will increase on ESA but all the online tools suggest that he's looking at a drop from about £130 a week to £70 a week. This would cripple us and force me to have to look for work and force my partner to have to spend all day in bed in order to remain safe while alone.
I hope to god I've missed something.......
Phone up the C UK phone line, or send them an email (but probably talking would be best).

Unfortunately they have restricted times for phoning - but they are very good with benefits.
It's complex.. have you tried the govt website to assess any potential entitlement?
