New style ESA

hi l am a bit confused.

i have just rang jobcentre plus to apply for contributory esa. They told me as I live in a full universal credit area I have to apply through them. When I rang them they didn't know about new style esa. I do not qualify for U C as my husband earns above the allowance. How do I apply for this new style esa ? I have enough N. I contributions. Do I need to fill the esa 1 online still as they don't want to do it over the phone.
