    Hi,

    It will totally depend on circumstances/household income and savings. DWP will contact you, there's no need to contact them.
    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.

    EESA is ESA. DWP will eventually contact those that could be affected so you'll have to wait for that i'm afraid.
