    If you’re ESA is Income Related and the lump sum doesn’t take your total savings/capital to more than £6,000 it will have no affect on your benefits. 

    If your ESA is either contributions based or New style then neither are means tested so it won’t affect it, regardless of capital amounts. 
    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.
