    If that 24th July was your last DLA then your ESA payment will be less on the 9th. To know exactly how much it will be you'll need to ring ESA and ask.

    Income Related Support Group is £127.15 per week. If you were claiming SDP when you were claiming DLA you will lose this amount of £64.30 per week.

    I'm so sorry to read that you are losing over £60 per week in severe disability premium. 

    Did you make a claim for Personal Independence Payment and get a negative decision? If so, I would suggest that it might be a good idea to check whether you have grounds to challenge this - through the mandatory reconsideration and if necessary the appeal process. 

    Do let us know if you need help finding a local advice agency with whom you could discuss this.
