    Welcome to the community @Oscarmurphy57 :) Thanks for joining, and for making your first post here!

    Would you be able to tell us a little bit more about your situation, so that we can try to answer your question? 

    You've mentioned an appeal - is this regarding your Universal Credit claim? What stage of the appeal are you at?

    No because you were claiming New style ESA, which isn't means tested so it wouldn't apply to that. If you claimed UC in March 2021 then you would have had the uplift in with your standard element because it didn't end until around September 2021.
    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.
