Type your message am due to start my State pension on 5th May 2020. I have received a letter today from ESA telling me they cannot pay me from 25th March, after over an hour waiting to speak to someone, they have passed it over to Benefits support who will try and call me by end of next week. My payment from ESA is due this Wednesday 8th April . Can anyone shed any light on why it cannot be paid until I start receiving my state pension ?
