ESA and DLA are seperate benefits.

Have you made a claim for ESA?

Do you receive Incapacity Benefit, Income Support because of incapacity, or Severe Disablement Allowance? These benefits are being transferred to ESA.

As you are receiving IB, I would assume this is why you have received the ESA form. There should have been some previous correspondance and an attempt by the DWP to contact by phone.

If possible, I would recommend you get face to face advice, see

Where to get advice?

However, failing that you should have a look at the following FAQs

Who will be transferred?

The Transfer Process

Our ESA Claim guides are on the following link

www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/help-for-claimants/esa

The following ESA related FAQs may be worth looking at.

Qualifying for the WRAG

Qualifying for the Support Group

How long do I have to complete the ESA50?

Use Of The Interactive PDF Version Of The ESA50 Questionnaire

ESA Medical – What to expect
