    Hi,

    This thread isn't about a work capability assessment. it's regarding the ESA under payments for those that transferred from Incapacity benefit.
    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.
