    Hi,

    When managed migration starts there will be a transitional payment protection in place so you won't be any worse off. Managed migration starts sometime next year but the move across could be anytime between 2019-2023 or possibly even later than that.
     
    As you're claiming SDP then you're claiming an Income related top up on your ESA contributions based.
