Has anyone on ESA had to go onto Universal Credit, and if you have, did you find another way of applying, without doing it via the internet? I have done no end of reading about the Universal Credit, and they seem to expect all disabled people to use the internet. Or they tell you to go to Citizens Advice Bureau, who will give you lessons. But I know there are a lot of disabled and mentally ill people who would not be able to apply using the internet themselves. I hear the online form is very difficult, doesn't allow you to save it and do it in bits, and expects you to have photo ID, and upload this and other documents. And worst of all, they expect all claimants to maintain a online account with them and they do not send anything via the post. Not even proof that you are claiming it. I know in my case, I have nobody who can apply on my behalf. I can not cope with questions at the best of times. And there is no way I can do it in 40 minutes. I find this whole thing, discriminates against the disabled, mentally ill and people with learning difficulties.
