Just a quick question.

I have someone who is claiming contribution based JSA who really should be claiming New Style ESA. They are finding it difficult with their claimant commitment. Anyone had any practical experience of switching from one to the other?

I think it’s just a question of making a new claim and making sure they still meet the contributions criteria for new style ESA. What issues are you thinking of?
