    If you're not currently working then the holiday pay will not affect your ESA. Still being employed is different to actually working.

    If you're claiming Universal Credit as well as ESA then the holiday pay will affect it.
    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.
