Will my ESA automatically go into state pension or do I have to apply?

    Hi @Brownsugar welcome to the community!

    I am unsure however there are very knowledgeable members in the community who will be in contact with you soon to advise.

    If there is anything else that we can help you with then please let us know! :)

    Hi @Brownsugar,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here. :)

    I've moved this post into our dedicated ESA category, so other members of our community can advise.

    I hope this helps. Do let us know if you have any other questions!

    No, you need to get a pension forecast and you will then need to specifically elect to claim PC if entitled.
