new style esa
so I have been getting income support and carers allowance, as I look after my daughter who has autism, she had an indefinite award for dla but recently lost this, I now am no longer entitled to these benefits so I rang the number to apply for esa (as i am unwell due to heart problems and anxiety among other things) and was told that I have to apply for universal credit, but have asked for a form for new style esa instead is this the best thing to apply for?
