ESA – URGENT Call for HELP??

August 17, 2014


A comment left on my recent PIP post really needs answering; I’m copying it here in the hope someone can help Julie:

I am so confused. I had my pip form and have filled it in,waiting for my CPN care plan. Went to look at my ESA payment in the bank, and to pay a bill,I get it every two weeks(I am in the support group)It wasn’t there??????????? I have had no letter to say that they are stopping it. I thought they could only stop your payment,if you were in the WRAG..I just don’t know what to do now. I cannot phone them,as I have only got a mobile and can’t phone their Bull@@@@ 0800 number.

Has anyone else had this happen?

I’m sure this isn’t an isolated  incident and if anyone has any productive ideas for Julie PLEASE leave them here – I’ll forward them on

    Not heard of Support Group Patyments being stopped, unless there is a review atthe end of an agreed term. So check this out. Oterwise, it’s an official error and they must make payment immediately or issue counter payment….Adam…

    I’m in the Support Group of ESA. i was told i’d be migrated from DLA to PIP in Nov/Dec 2013…i was sent the forms and returned them late Dec 2013.. a few weeks later I was informed my bank account was overdrawn and on checking saw my ESA had not been paid. After phoning them I was told sometimes PIP can trigger benefits being stopped something to do with computer ussues!! It auto triggers ESA being stopped. hmmmm !! it was a computer problem they are aware of and trying to fix.. or NOT as the case maybe. I posted this in several groups so people can be aware of it and keep checking their bank when they apply for PIP. I was told if i was desperate they could pay me within a few hours but would have to apply to a supervisor for it otherwise it would be 2/3 days.. ppfftt sorry love not my problem and don;t try to hide the failings of the stupid computer system.
    i hope this helps somewhat, take care
