    Hi,

    Any money you receive from ESA will be deducted £1 for £1 from any UC you receive.

    Hi @hello20. It's from the day you pressed 'submit' on your online application form. 
    So if you started the application, and only filled out part of the information on the 11th October and didn't submit it, that won't count. Do you know when you pressed submit?

    You say you applied on 3rd November, is this correct? Have you had an appointment at your local job centre yet to confirm your identity?

    Adrian is submit  application when You need to enter the code they send  to confirm your email address for your Universal Credit application.

    If you do not confirm your email address in 7 days you will have to start a new application.

    Yes,you always need to confirm your email address. I'm assuming you didn't do this and your UC claim was closed?

    What sort of ESA? Contributory or means-tested? The former should be deducted. The latter should be replaced by UC and not laud at the same time. There have been multiple cases of the latter happening. Ditto Pension Credit and UC. UC don’t know what they’re doing with them and will argue that black is white so it’s important to know what sort of ESA before we go any further. 
    Having helped this member quite a lot in the last few weeks, they were claiming Income related ESA and this thread is no longer of any use because this claim on 3rd November was never submitted. They have since started a new claim with the help from their local advice agency.
