If someone gets conts based ESA old style. If his wife loses her job and they need help with rent. Have to claim UC. Will his conts based ESA stay in payment. So if his wife gets a new job then he will still get ESA. Thanks

Yes, the contribution based ESA will continue in payment and the UC payment reduced by the ESA amount.
