Hi all, quick question when esa backdate money, do they only pay it out when your next esa payment is due, or can they issue backdated payments anytime?..

The last time i was paid back dated money from esa is was issued as a seperate payment but on the same day as my normal esa. is that always the case?.

Thanks.

    Hi

    I recently had my 2 year backdated esa and received a text stating 3 working days with amount being paid in. It was done separate to my regular payment this was only 6 weeks ago

      It's quite frustrating having to do that isn't it. I got a payment one day and another the following day also. They were both released at the same time but possibly my bank took longer.

      Good luck x

    I think it depends on how much it is because large payments usually need to be authorised by a bod higher up so get posted at different times.

    When I got my backdated ESA it was paid same day as regular payment but as a different transaction
