I have just moved from another part of the country where I was receiving Housing benefit, unfortunately where I am now I have had to apply for Universal Credit. I have been disabled since 2009 and am in receipt of PIP and ESA support group. Even though I have undergone 3 medical assessments and been deemed unable to work I am being asked to attend the Job Centre to look for work and make various commitments, failure to comply could mean a 3 year sanction !!! I am feeling totally distraught by this and the stress is unbelievable....I will only find out a couple of days what amount I will get before its paid. I am also told ESA will disappear... anybody else have any experience of this ?
