ESA payment during mandatory reconsideration?

Hi all.

I had a ESA assessment a few weeks ago; I received a letter letting me know that I passed it.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that they switched me from the support group to the work related group.

I plan of appealing. I called the DWP and requested the reasons for this decision. I should receive it in a couple of days.

If I appeal and undertake a mandatory reconsideration, will I still receive ESA while they are making their decision? 

Thank you

    I belive that as you have an award in payment , that will continue until you hearing as long as you meet the requirements of the WRAG group

    That would be great! I really hope you're right, I don't want to go the December  period with my payment being frozen... excuse the pun.

    Can anyone else confirm this?
