ESA 2 week run-on when claiming UC as a couple
Am I correct that an IR-ESA claimant who joins her partner’s UC claim (because they are moving in together) will continue to get ESA for 2 weeks, in the same way as a single claimant migrating to UC would?
No, this case is specifically excluded from the run-on.
See the definition of “relevant claim for universal credit” here.
Thank you, Charles
I’m glad I checked!
