    Great news, well done.

    Sometimes a new award, even though your ESA award stayed the same it can still cause a problem with your first payment after a decision's been made.

    As for the deductions i would have no idea. If you were going to be paid less ESA they would have seen the reasons why when you rang them? As they couldn't see any reasons either then surely you'll recieve the correct payment.

    You say change of address? Do you claiming housing benefit? If so have you moved to a different local council?

      I'm not too bad thank you.

      You're really worrying over nothing. Like i said because a new decision has been made then it would have caused a small issue with the automatic payment system on your claim. This was noticed and you'll still be paid on the day you should be. There's nothing wrong with your claim, a decision's been made and you've been kept in the Support Group. Please relax now, your worries are over concerning the ESA for now. Take care.
