    Hi,

    The only thing you can do is ring them again when they open today.

    I'm glad it's sorted but they should do a same day payment. Sometimes just a simple error can cause a payment not to be made.

    Lots of people claim ESA and PIP successfully first time without any problems at all. The only problem is we don't hear about the good stories. If someone's had a decision they're happy with they have no questions to ask, so we don't hear their story.
