Hi,

Generally it is impossible to say as the criteria for award of the two benefits are different.

DLA looks at your mobility and care needs, whereas ESA is concerned with whether you can work or not.

There is a degree of overlap between the two but they are different benefits for different things.

It would be worth reading through the DLA resources in the members area here:
