     I don't quite understand your post, you say you are LCWRA but not claiming UC. ESA does have a Support Group which you claim you are already getting. I don't know anything about the extra £40 unless you are talking about  the Legacy Court case which wasn't won so is irrelevant.

    LCWRA is a UC element. It has nothing to do with ESA.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Which is why others have said LCWRA is nothing to do with ESA.  I have no idea what that £40 is that you mentioned.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Because it's part of UC.

    LCWRA is part of UC, it has nothing to do with ESA, ESA has Support Group and WRAG, that's it.

    All you need to remember is WRAG and Support Group is ESA. LCWRA and LCW are both part of UC and do not apply to you.
