ESA HC5 help

Hey all,

Today I had my first lot of treatment at Birmingham hospital. I have to attend every 2 weeks for 12 months - a nightmare given I live almost 2 hours away.

I intend to claim back petrol expenses and given I'm on IR ESA, I can claim back. 

But the HC5 form is confusing me. Says take to a cashiers office with benefit entitlement and bottom of form states I have to send it off to ESA to stamp? How do they pay me?

Any advice appreciated!
