    Hi,

    Could we have some more information please? Do you claim ESA at the moment? Are you working, do you live with a partner that works?

    Are you asking if you can re-claim ESA? i'm sorry but it's still not clearly what exactly it is you're asking for help with.

    Ah i see. DWP are in the process of contacting everyone that moved across but there were 1000's of people. If you were one of them then they will contact you at some point in the future. Whether you're entitled to anything will depend on your circumstances at the time.
