    Thanks @Ails for the tag,

    Hi and welcome @Mikew1978

    I'm a little confused because you mention UC and then ESA, which one are you claiming or are you claiming New style ESA as well?  H

    ave you already been assessed as having limited capability for work and been placed into a group? Or is this your first time for the assessment process?

    Sorry for the questions but it's difficult to give any advice until you answer those questions.
