TOPIC: ESA Payments

ESA Payments 8 years 7 months ago #18126

  • Costa
Hi I applied for ESA in July had my medical in february and and currently awaiting a decision, the papers have been with the DM since 18th March. I was just wondering that if I am entitled to ESA (either group) fingers crossed - then would my uprated payments be backdated to the end of the assessment phase of 13 weeks?
Or will I just get the new payments from the date of the decision?
Thanks a lot
Wendy

The arrears from the uprated amount if you are placed in the LCWRA group or support group, would be payable fron the 14th week following the date of claim.
