ESA paperwork confusion

shihtzudaisy Member Posts: 2 Listener

My daughter has bi-polar and psychosis. She was on a section 2 of the mental health act in hospital on 20/3/18. Last week she was put on a section 3 mental health act.

I am trying to deal with her paperwork and benefits, but am ignorant on benefits as I am on pension/pension credit.

What I want to know is my daughter gets ESA of £226.44 every 2 weeks is this correct or should she be on a higher rate as I believe there are 2 rates.
