    Hi,

    As far as i know there's only 1 ESA number to ring and that's the existing claims number. If they still say it's the wrong number i'm wondering is your area a full Universal credit area? If it is then you may have problems claiming the Income related top up on your existing ESA claim because they will tell you to claim UC. Check what's in your area here. http://ucpostcode.entitledto.co.uk/ucdate

    Let me know what it says once you popped your postcode in into the link and i'll help you further, if needed.

     Many thanks to poppy123456  and thespiceman for all your help and advice. I have managed to find a letter on the internet from the special review board set up for the esa support for disabled people who haven't claimed the enhanced top up as well which the government are trying to sort out at the moment. The people at the end of the line deal specify with these cases and was most helpful . The number is 08001690348 .Hope this helps lots of people.
