    is this a ploy to force the £30 cut on WRAG claimants?

      I thought there was a clause in benefits that those who are forced to change over will get no less than they do at present

    I think this will be a ploy to change or do away with the wrag and the support group.

    i cant see anything alluding to ESA in that statement at all. can someone please copy the relevant part for me? thank you.

    Universal Credit will replace ESA and the statement says the rollout will be for ‘all claimant types.’

    It took me a while to find the relevant bit as well!

      so they are stopping ESA altogether? so there will be no provision for people who are sick,ill, disabled but not bad enough for pip. UC will not be known as a disabilitry benefit will it? there wont be any differentiation between unemployment, sickness benefits or pensioners by sounds of that statement.

        Yes, sadly I think you’re right 😦

        ESA is one of the several benefits that UC is meant to subsume, along with WTC, HB and JSA. It has the same WRAG/SG components and criteria as ESA (meaning that the WRAG component is worth £0, of course).

    and will it then by default count as a “new” claim and be reduced by the £30?
