Can you receive both ESA and UC?
You can get New Style ESA on its own or at the same time as Universal Credit. If you apply for and are awarded both benefits, the New Style ESA you are paid will reduce your Universal Credit payment by the same amount.
Will my ESA stop if I claim Universal Credit?
If your income-related ESA claim is ending because you’re making a new claim for Universal Credit, you’ll automatically continue to get the amount of ESA you currently receive, as long as you’re still eligible.
How much is full ESA?
You should get £17.75 if you don’t live with a partner, and £25.35 if you live with a partner. You won’t get the enhanced disability premium if your partner has reached State Pension age – check your partner’s State Pension age on GOV.UK.
