I went for my esa medical assessment and only got 9 points so it was stopped.
Hi there everyone, I went for my esa medical assessment and only got 9 points so it was stopped. I was then told that while my mandatory reconsideration was being considered I should apply for universal credit which I did. Now, today at my universal credit appointment I was told my reconsideration was unsuccessful and was told that esa no longer exists (even though my partner and her daughter are on esa so how can it not exist) so what happens if I take it to tribunal now, would I go back on esa (bearing in mind it no longer exists) or would I be on universal credit and if so is there a component that caters for people that can't work at all? And how much would I get please? Would it be the same as what I was getting on esa? Thanks
