Esa payments stopped what next
I am in receipt of pip as I was formerly on dla I was asked to claim pip which resulted after assessment that my condition worsened and my payments increased significantly. However I have recently had my esa claim refused (after 4years of claiming assessments appeals reconsideration) the last time I had to claim jsa but advised at jc to continue with fitnotes after 13 weeks I was then advised to reclaim esa but after assessment I was refused and told to claim universal credit I have crippling arthritis and was born with extra thumbs which have been removed which is why I was in receipt of dla my arthritis worsened over many years working as a tarmacadam. Is it correct that if I claim uc I cannot ever claim esa again if so should I claim universal credit or go through the mandatory reconsideration appeal process again. I received no points in assessment which I find bizarre as my pip claim for same condition which dwp made me claim awarded me almost maximum points. Please any advice will help
