    Hi and welcome,

    Why were you told to claim to UC and what happened to your ESA claim before you claimed UC? Were you found fit for work when you claimed ESA? Are you claiming limited capability for work for UC now?

    What elements you're entitled to for UC will totally depend on your circumstances.

    Sorry but more information is needed to be able to help you further.
