    If you've paid enough NI contributions in the past 2 tax years then you'll be able to claim New style Contributions based ESA. If not then claiming UC will depend on your circumstances. You really do need to speak to your local CAB/ benefits centre for a full benefits check, this way you'll be able to tell them all your circumstances and they'll be able to advise accordingly.
