    No, but they may book one, whilst the ESA information is transferred to UC. She will have to accept commitments either way. They may also tell her to obtain a fit note.

    Unless you're also claiming Tax credits she won't migrate to UC until at least 2028, unless a change of circumstances prompts a move in the meantime.

    Bit confused about that poppy as it says people on esa in certain areas ( including ours) would get migration letters in September?

    Where ever you read that it's not correct (unless you're claiming Tax credits as well) See link. https://www.turn2us.org.uk/jargon-buster/managed-migration

    Also managed migration only applies to those claiming Income Related ESA. Those that are claiming either New style ESA or the old contributions based will not be migrated across.
