What you tell us on this page affects which benefits you could be entitled to so please answer each question carefully.
There are currently two benefits systems – legacy benefits and Universal Credit – and we need to know if you, or your partner if you have one, already receive any of these benefits to work out your entitlements.
You may be getting one of these if you are out of work and on a low income.
As an existing claimant of ESA you are likely to be in the main phase of your award.
This is determined by the Work Capability Assessment you had.
If your claim for Employment and Support Allowance started on or after 3 April 2017 then you will not receive extra money if you are in the work-related activity group. Only people put in the Support group will receive extra money, for all new claims after this date.
You may be getting this if you are in work and on a low income.
You may be getting this extra amount in your benefit if you don't have a carer receiving Carer's Allowance for looking after you. Please see the help icon for more detail.
We are going to work out your entitlement to the legacy benefits you have selected above because you have told us you are already claiming them.It’s important to note you may need to claim Universal Credit if you have recently had a change of circumstances.So you can see how this could affect your entitlements we will also show what you might be entitled to under Universal Credit on the results page.
You may be getting contributory/new-style Jobseeker's Allowance or contributory/new-style Employment Support Allowance if you worked recently and paid National Insurance contributions.
If you are making a new claim this is normally the assessment phase
If you receive the support component you are exempt from the benefit cap
Answer yes if you are getting a benefit related to maternity, paternity or bereavement, or a war related pension.
We are going to work out your entitlement to Universal Credit.
This is because you didn’t tell us above you are already claiming a legacy benefit.
If you do already claim one of the benefits in the blue box above please go back and edit your answers.
If you are making a new claim for benefits click ‘Next’ to carry on and we will check what you might be entitled to under Universal Credit.
