    Hi Dawn,

    I received my first payment for ESA yesterday and that too shows as JSA. I called them worried I had gotten confused with which benefit they had awarded but I was told that one off payments are paid under the same payment system which shows up as JSA on bank accounts - Nothing to worry about. x

    Hi Dawn,

    Most initial ESA in the (support group) payments, will appear as JSA. This is standard, it may look wrong but it is correct. Your next ESA payment will show on a bank statement as EESA paid via the BACS system.
