    I note from a previous thread that it’s New style ESA you’re claiming and there’s no disability premiums payable with this ESA. See previous thread here

    You can use a benefits calculator to check entitlement to Universal Credit. If you live with a partner you will need to claim as a couple and your joint circumstances will be taken into consideration. 
    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.
