Existing ESA claimants are scheduled to be moved to UC and New ESA sometime in 2019 although this date seems optimistic given the problems with UC.

At this time it is not clear how the transfer will be done, it could be an administrative process or it could coincide with a future assessment, we won't know until the relevant legislation is published which is not likely to be done in the near future.
