My mum gets esa, 235 per fortnight. She is in the support group esa. Is universal credit included in this payment? Or can she apply?

    Does she have a partner?

    That amount is either contributions based or New style ESA. If her ESA claim started after Dec 2018 then it will very likely be New style. Universal Credit a completey different benefit, whether she qualifies will depend on her circumstances because it's a means tested benefit.
    First thing she needs to do is check what her ESA claim is.
