    You haven’t given enough of information for anyone to be able to help.

    Are you claiming ESA for just yourself or does it include money for a partner? 

    There’s no disability elements payable with ESA, there’s disability premiums. 

    Which group are you in? Support Group? When did your ESA claim start? 

    Are you claiming a disability benefit such as PIP or DLA? If so which one and what award do you have? 

    As an additional thought are you claiming Universal Credit and not ESA? 

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
