    Hi @Bushby

    Good Afternoon & Welcome ???

    As far as I can make out this is down to a “Computer Glitch”

    So people are getting their esa payments split in two “separate payments”

    “Half this week & Half next week”

    You need to get hold of someone at “DWP” If this will be a “Problem” 

    We have got a “Helpline”
    0808 800 3333

    If you have any further problems!!!!!

    I would also be very happy in helping you???

    With either help/support/info if required!!!!
