    You can check what's in your area here and if it's not yet a full UC credit area then it will tell you when it will be. http://ucpostcode.entitledto.co.uk/ucdate

    If it's already a full UC area then you'll stay on ESA unless a change of circumstances means you have to claim UC. Otherwise DWP will write to you when the time comes but managed migrations to UC won't take place until at least 2019 and most likely even later than that for a lot of people.
