WCA on ESA interaction with the New Enterprise Allowance
Client wants to apply for New Enterprise Allowance. Has also received ESA50 for a review on his ESA claim.
His query is if he applies for the NEA would ESA still be reviewing and assessing his claim in the background? Or would the NEA ‘pause’ his ESA for 26 weeks while he is paid NEA and then the ESA/WCA review process would continue.
My thoughts are that the two are separate and if his ESA claim is due to be reviewed he won’t be able to pause or delay this process with the New Enterprise Allowance. Is this the case?
Obviously if he fails his WCA he can claim UC and I presume still receive the NEA for 26 weeks until it ends and he goes back on JSA.

Anyone got any ideas on this one?
Not come across NEA in any detail before to be honest!
