Esa payments

I have received my first esa payment which was backdated from the 26th December to 22nd Jan on the 19th of Jan. The letter said that I will receive esa every two weeks from now on till my assessment has been done. Will that be two weeks from 19th of Jan or the 22nd of Jan? I am so confised

    I exspect its the 22nd every two weeks there after till your assessment and a decision has been made as to which group you are put in. I was lucky having had a PIP a month earlier was sent for assessment but when I rang to arrange transport was informed I did not need to attend a desision had been made putting me in the surport group. Good luck.
