TOPIC: MY RECENT EXPERIENCE WITH ESA WCA

Your existing award will be migrated into UC, we're not sure how this will happen yet as currently it is done manually and takes a couple of weeks sothis won't be viable for 2m claimants.

Hi again, i will tag this question onto here if that is ok?
When you are ‘invited’ to apply for UNIVERSAL CREDIT how long do you have to complete the forms ? I am currently on ESA (transferred from IB years ago) Just wondered .Thanks

Hi Exhausted

Do you live in the Harrogate area? Reason for my asking is that most people on ESA will be worse off on UC especially if they receive a SDP. Those who are moved by managed migration and get their paperwork in on time should get transitional protection so they're not left financially worse off by moving onto Universal Credit.

I have had a quick check but have not found an exact date to apply for UC but I did come across managed migration legislation www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2019/9780111178317 for a bit of light reading.
