ESA payment during mandatory reconsideration?

Hi all.

I had a ESA assessment a few weeks ago; I received a letter letting me know that I passed it.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that they switched me from the support group to the work related group.

I plan of appealing. I called the DWP and requested the reasons for this decision. I should receive it in a couple of days.

If I appeal and undertake a mandatory reconsideration, will I still receive ESA while they are making their decision? 

Thank you
