Hi @alldred A few months ago I moved areas in the same town i lived in and my ESA claim was closed down and was advised to claim UC which they transfer ESA claim to UC claim so ypu dont have to go through assesment again as I was ESA. So they should automatically award you higher rate LWCRA Element gor UC claim and tell them that ypu were ESA Support group. It sometimes can take time for them to transfer the claim but keep phoning and monitor claim surely it would be done.
Hi @poppy123456 Yep, you are correct poppy. Only if need to claim rent then you need claim UC in same local area. Thanks correcting me.
