    HI and welcome,

    Are you saying that you were previously claiming UC and now you're claiming Income Related ESA? Or is it New style ESA you're claiming?

    You were always on the correct benefit but you just haven't been assessed for the work capability assessment. There's no other benefits that you can claim other than New style ESA and UC but there's no financial gain when you're claiming them both at the same time.
