Husbands ESA did not go in

My husband is due to receive his contributon ESA (15/03/2023) it usually goes in after midnight & it’s now gone 6:30 in the morning. I have checked out our online bank account & no payment has not gone in the bank apparently they did this around a year ago when they did not put our payments on time. I don’t know what’s happening? We will have to call DWP & ask why?
