TOPIC:

Will i get the £20 per week pandemic increase 1 month 3 weeks ago #248776

Hi

I'm in support group on ESA and also i get PIP. Will i get the £20 a week increase to my ESA UC have been awarded in the first months of the pandemic ? Does it also occur to PIP ?

The message seems unclear - either it's fudged or it's suggested it might occur during the summer. Also it's not clear if it will be ubiquitous / automatic or just a top up for those receiving below a certain amount.

Any info gratefully received.

thanks

If you are receiving Universal Credit then you will be paid the £20 a week automatically.

If you are not receiving UC then you won't as neither the ESA nor PIP rates have been changed.
