Esa payments

Hi guys my 1st post here so thank you for listening to me.

Ok so I'm on esa and have had my face to face for pip 3 weeks ago to the day and I'm waiting for the outcome. I have been on dla for 13yrs due to mental health. If I lost my pip application I know i would get a last payment 28 after my next payment for dla.

So I rewned my esa in August and still waiting for a response from them to say when I'm have a face to face

Once I have my ESA face to face If they found me fit for work would payments stop right away or is there a time frame like on dla.

My head is so over the place at the min and I know I'm over thinking it but with my state of mind I'd like to be some what prepared for the worst outcome.

Thanks for you time and help

    When a decision is made on your ESA if you're found fit for work then your payments will stop straight away. Different to PIP/DLA. Good luck with both!
