    ESA is and ongoing award and unlike PIP does not have a finishing date. You can be reaassessed any time from three months.
    As for the premiums, you should get trained help from an advice centre near you, do not apply for UC or make any other change until you do

    Hi,

    I previously helped you with this question on your other thread here. You said in a comment that your sister was claiming New style ESA and her claim started in May 2018. It's impossible to claim any premiums on top of New style ESA.
