Hi, although I rarely post on here, I do visit quite a lot because of the valuable advice and info you can find out. It's great to see you back poppy123456, I have missed your knowledge! My question is, I retire on 29th Oct but don't receive a part payment (approx £240) until 7th Nov and then my first normal 4 weekly payment on 5th Dec. Will I just be paid my ESA up until my state pension retirement date or the date I actually start receiving money. TIA
