If ESA application fails will I be on UC or can I go back to income based JSA

Post by cc120 on Fri Jan 05, 2018 2:54 pm

I am currently on income based JSA. I intend to apply for ESA. If ESA application unsuccessful would I have to go on UC or can I choose to go back to income based JSA?

Don't take this as 100% accurate cc120 but as far as I know any change to your circumstances is the trigger for being moved to UC. But even then there are gateway conditions that have to be met to allow you to be moved onto UC and you may not meet those conditions and so stay on JSA.

See page 31 for gateway conditions: http://www.cpag.org.uk/sites/default/files/CPAG-opening-gateway-UC-claims-conference-notes-Sept2015.pdf

any refusal would normally place you back on a continuation of a claim the only problem at this stage is would it be normal jsa continuation

i suspect it would be now be classed as reverting back onto new style uc regs if within your area if not it will be the old jsa system

if not in theory you would have to have a new interview and then sign a new declaration with jsa cc

 What if one is on old style JSA in a fully UC area and wants to apply for ESA?
Would one be moved to UC/ESA?
The little I have seen has been confusing.

As I mentioned above Brutus as far as I am aware any change to your claim for JSA immediately moves the claimant to UC. As applying for ESA would be a significant change to your claim I'm guessing that you'd certainly then be on UC and if ESA applies to UC claimants then you'd be on UC and ESA and of course permanently on UC from that point onward.
