Cost of living payment question?

Hi hope everyone is well.
I know the COL payments start from Tomorrow until the 17th and I know I qualify.
My question is will I still get it if my ESA payments have been made clerical and taken off system due to other reasons?
Or does that have nothing to do with cost of living payment?

    You will still receive it because you still have an active ESA claim.
