    Not had mine yet. There's plenty of time to receive it, it's only 20th January and benefits don't increase until April. You can see the rates for 2023/24 here. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/benefit-and-pension-rates-2023-to-2024/benefit-and-pension-rates-2023-to-2024

    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.

    Plenty of time to receive it as benefits don’t increase until April. You need to give it more time as there’s many people who won’t have received it yet.

    Did you check they had your right address when you called up the ESA line? Just to be sure! I am sure your letter will arrive, post can be a little slower when things aren't done via first class.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    Your ESA will not just stop. The only time this will happen is if they find you fit for work. There's many others that haven't received the letter yet because there's still plenty of time left to receive it. 

    I realise you received it last year in January but that doesn't mean you should have received it this year at the same time. Please try not to worry because you will eventually receive it.
