looking for clarification
Hi all, hoping some one here maybe able to advise to what could be a simple /obvious issue, just I am new to this and trying to get some clarification/peace of mind. I am in receipt of ESA, initially had a universal credit claim request, but was advised early on no UC would be paid, due to my wife earning sufficient funds. since then I have continued to communicate via Universal credit and recently had to attend a DWP assessment for work, the outcome being they accepted I am unable to work,. Logged into Universal credit this week to find they have now closed their file. So just looking for clarification whether this effects my ESA payment or not. I tried phoning Jobcentre plus, been on hold for over two hours in three attempts, went in to my local job centre for clarification (as near my counselling) and they were unable to advise, just to keep trying the phone or return back in the future and the system may have updated. Again apologies if i seem to be making a mountain out of a molehill and/or I am missing something obvious, but any help/knowledge would be huge to me and my anxieties!
