    @Biblioklept I did make a claim ESA regarding support group i got turned down as it's crossing over to uc

    The only ESA that's possible to claim now is New style ESA and to be enititled to this you'll need to have paid the correct amount of NI contributions from working in tax years April 2019 to March 2021.
    When claiming this at the same time as UC there's no financial gain, the ESA will just be deducted from any UC entitlement. Though ESA will pay class 1 NI and UC only pays class 3.
    Are you currently claiming UC? if so have you had a work capability assessment?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Maybe they were calling to check some questions with you or ask about a date for assessment if you haven't had it yet?? Are there any notes on your UC journal?

    The UC50 form is the work capability assessment form when claiming UC, if you reported a health condition. It’s nothing to do with claiming New style ESA.

    Yes, that’s the work capability assessment form for UC.
