as usual went to do my fortnight shopping and I hadn’t been paid my stress was absolutely through the roof.
Phoned Dwp explanation on what’s happened and he told me because I’ve been awarded standard daily care and enhanced mobility they now have to increase my esa he assured me my payment for esa would be through in a few hrs.
im still in shock as although I do suffer a lot on a daily basis and didn’t submit much with my claim I honestly thought I’d have to do an MR but nope thanks to everyone here that has given me hope and encouragement ?

    So happy for you.
    I'm hoping to be in the same situation as you soon.
    I'm waiting my assessment result.
    I'm on income based ESA.
    What extra entitlements do you now get following on from your success on your pip claim if you don't mind me asking. You would have thought that they could have made those calculations and paid you as normal on time. Good job you weren't doing a monthly shop.....
