    They're completely different benefits, so yes you can.

    You asked about an ESA assessment the other day, are you claiming this or UC?

    This is the work capability assessment for UC, not for ESA.

    You're confusing yourself with all these questions about the different benefits. You can't claim ESA now because you've claimed UC.
