It's important to understand that your ESA claim has not been closed, it is your payments that have been stopped.

The DWP should have checked whether you are eligible for Income Related ESA, if you are then then your payments should be reinstated from the day after your ESA(CB) ended. ESA(IR) is dependant on your household income, your savings and assets, and any hours that your partner works. See

Asset and savings rule for ESA(IR)

24 hour work rule for ESA(IR)

If your condition deteriorates and you can show that you meet one of the SG Descriptors then you can be placed back in that group and your ESA(CB) put back into payment. If you close your claim then you will not be able to claim ESA again unless there is a significant change in your circumstances.
