    Hi,

    No one can tell you if you'll successfully be given limited capability for work under UC, i'm afraid you'll have to wait for a decision. To get the extra money per month you'll need to be given limited capability for work related activity (LCWRA) which is Support Group equivalent for ESA.

    Were you claiming ESA immediately before claiming UC or did you stop ESA to start work?
