Enhanced Rate of ESA for capital reduction.

I have just rang the DWP to see where todays benefit payment is. The person started to go on about letters about my capital telling me if it had dropped below £6,000 I would be entitled to an enhanced payment. I supposed to have been receiving letters about it. I am claiming contributory ESA & am in the Support Group. She suggested I look at my capital & write to them with statements etc. She eventually got around to looking at my missing payment & could not see why I was not paid. She eventually did something on her computer & apparently the payment should eventually be paid sometime today. I have never heard of this enhanced rate.
