Esa non payment.

Hi I haven't been paid esa today it normally goes in Monday and credits over the weekend. I have read other posts saying it could be the computer systems are down.

Has anyone else had problems with their payments today or yesterday? I am worried sick as I can't get in touch until Monday.

    Is your actual pay day a Monday? If that’s the case it wouldn’t be classed a late until Monday has passed regardless when your bank usually credits it.

    Yeah it's normally the Monday but am sure they release it Wednesday or Thursday  and if Barclays knows it going in they normally credit it Saturday. So I can pretty much assume it's not going in Monday either. Trust them to make me worry over the weekend about my money.

    I totally sympathise with it not going in, but as I say it won’t be classed as late until Monday has passed as that is meant to be your pay day. Getting it credited by the bank over the weekend was kind of a bonus. 

    There isn’t anything your going to be able to do until Monday morning when you can check if the money is in your account and if not then call ESA.

    It's went in on a sat for god knows how long so doesn't stop me from worrying. Was just wondering if everyone got paid OK. Will ring on Monday morning.  Thanks.

    Hi there @SnooFloofs you are the 4th person on here to not have had their esa so I think it is a technical fault at their end 

    Somebody did say they rang and they were told the computer system was down
