Im just wondering if someone has had the same phone call as me. I have just recently had a tribunal for my claim for pip and won. I have received my back pay and my normal payments have started. Before this I had a re assessment for my esa and was awarded it for 12 months but never had to attend a tribunal for this like I did for my pip. I have just received a phone call from esa. I was asked to confirm my address, if I had ever received carers allowance, and if I had a partner throughout my claim. I was told I would start receiving disability premium again and I would be owed back pay from September 2018. I’m due my esa payment on Tuesday and was told I would receive it today instead of Tuesday so there wasn’t any confusing once the back pay was processed. I was told I would receive my back pay on Thursday. Can anyone tell me why I’m receiving backpay for esa when my claim has never been stopped? My disability premium that is paid in with my esa after my pip stopped last year. My only guess is is that now I’ve been given my pip back that I’m automatically entitled to the disability premium again? And I’m owed. I’m really confused. I should of asked. But I did explain that I had received backpay from pip already.
