Extra payment from ESA or Universal Credit

Options
I have a question.
I have been on Universal Credit for over 2 years before - (LCW-Limited Capability for Work). From February this year I received the PIP Standard and Mobility award for 3 years. I have ESA since April this year, but from 08/07/2019 I was awarded the ESA Support Group.
What extra money will I get extra from ESA and what extra will I get from Universal Credit ?

Please all info Thank You.

    Hi,

    You will receive £111.65 per week from ESA and the LCWRA element of UC, which is £336 per month extra. However, your ESA will be deducted £1 for £1 from your UC payments.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    The ESA is amount is deducted from your total UC amount.

    LCWRA is paid from the 4th complete assessment period.
