Hi, I was waiting word back from my DWP assessment and this is the latest payment that has come in. I've never seen one like it before. As it usually just says DWP ESA bout this says DWP GB FP LP funding.
Could anyone tell me what this is    or have any idea... Thank you

    HI,

    The best thing to do is ring them and ask. If it's your first ESA assessment then it could be money they owe you but we could only guess here.
    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.

    Unless a family member can help you then your only option will be a food bank and you'll need a referral for this. This link will help you find one in your area and then just ring them. They will tell you what you need to do. Some can also help with gas/electric tokens.

    I know you claim PIP, when are you due your payment for this? Hopefully it's soon, then this will help you until you hear from DWP about the SDP claim.
