    Hi,

    If you're receiving Income Related ESA then yes eventually you will be invited to apply for UC but this is most likely a few years away yet, unless a change of circumstances prompts a move in the meantime.

    There's a pilot being launched in Harrogate that was due to start in July but that's been delayed. For this they will be inviting 10,000 people from this area to move across. Then managed migration starts sometime next year most likely.

    At the moment you're worrying needlessly and should try to relax.

    Aww I’m so sorry you’re so worried @najdi!! Unless you’re in Harrogate you won’t just get a letter telling you to apply or switch to Universal Credit. Everyone will end up on it eventually but it’s going to take a long time for that to happen. Also when you do get put in it, your ESA will transfer over, it shouldn’t mean you are re-evaluated any sooner. ❤️
