TOPIC: IB to ESA transfer - payment days

IB to ESA transfer - payment days 3 years 8 months ago #118176

I was transferred from Ib to esa support group, which took seven months in total. Many thanks to B&W for your help, you gave me confidence to both fill in the form and attend my medical knowing I had a fair chance of success.
I am in receipt of a letter advising me that the benefit changed from 21 February.
One question. My IB should have been paid a couple of days ago but it wasn't so any benefit payment is now overdue. Will my first ESA payment include a payment for the few days in arrears for IB?

Hi B,

Congratulations on The SG award !! :)

Thank you for your kind words regarding B&W.

As you have been successfully transferred from IB, your payments should be continuous.

Your payment day may change though :

Benefit payment dates

If your ESA payments do not go into your bank account when expected you should ring the 0845 number on the SG decision notice letter.

If you wish to know the recommended length of the SG award before reassessment, (The Prognosis) you can also request the relevant documentation :

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?

&

How often will I be reviewed

From our :

ESA FAQ’s

As you have been transferred over from IB, see also :

What will I be paid?

&

From our : IB, IS, SDA, Migration to ESA FAQ’s

I hope this helps.
