TOPIC: CB ESA support group & UC

CB ESA support group & UC 2 months 4 days ago #219378

Hi
I was awarded enhanced for PIP earlier this year and so very thankful to the guides which I spent months highlighting and comparing to pip assessment guide.

Thank you so much to whoever writes them, if its Gordon you deserve a medal and to all who input it and manage this website and forum, special thanks.

One question
I'm in cb ESA support group and wonder if I'll be reassessed next July at the roll out as universal credit is already in my area.
I'm confused about if I am in the SG do I get to stay on ESA or move to UC like everyone else, and then I presume I'd lose money as I'm uncertain but it's about 73.00 a week isn't it?

Sorry it sounds all mixed up but ESA makes me feel mixed up and confused as to the different parts of it.
Thank you

It is Steve Donnison & Holiday Whitehead who provide the guides I just cover the forum.

It is only Income Related benefits such as ESA(IR) that will be migrated to UC, it is possible that ESA(CB) may be moved to New Style ESA, the UC equivalent of ESA(CB) but there is no news on whether this is likely or if it is when it would happen.
