Esa and pension- 3 months 2 weeks ago #226026

Will my esa stop when I reach pension age in September.I receive esa contribution based am in the support group with top up and receive pip higher level on both mobility and care elements. The reason I am asking is because I have just received a letter from DWP stating my esa amount from April ( just the standard yearly letter
But it says in September the amount changes to esa with no disability income guarantee ( £16.80).this equals £111.75 In September rather than £128.45 which is new amount from April.
I am confused as I thought esa would stop and I would get my state pension.
Could you please advice me -thank you

Yes, your ESA will stop when you reach State Retirement Age, the letter is a standard one and I doubt that they take account of the claimant approaching SRA when it is produced.
