It must be difficult for you but it does sound like most people will be moved over to universal credit. They will send you a letter first and then I would imagine that you would need to be assessed. Try not to worry too much hopefully everything will work out for you.

Default Re: Universal credit

At the minute a lot of areas are only putting new claimants onto universal credit. Existing ESA claimants will be asked to move across if they have a change of circumstances or if they are part of the transition process in there area. You should have transitional protection when moved across which means you keep whatever amount you currently get with ESA until you have a change of circumstance.

If you do get asked to move across get some advice from the CAB, welfare rights, MIND or any other organisation local to you.
