TOPIC: ESA benifits stopping

ESA benifits stopping 2 months 3 weeks ago #196490

I have just heard a rumor that in October all benifits are stopping and everyone is being reassessed to move to UC. Both myself and my wife are disabled but only she can claim anything as only one person per household can claim ESA, they just pay my stamp and I get DLA but nothing else. my wife is in the support group so we would be greatful for any help or advice about this matter and if it even applies to the support group at all. My wife also gets child tax credits and DLA which we have heard are stopping in October also, Is this just hearsay or are the gouverment not telling people that this is about to happen?

What you have heard is rubbish, at the most Universal Credit may be going live in your area but there are no plans to migrate existing claimants to UC for at least several years and possibly longer.
