    Hi,

    I have given you advice on the same question on another thread here. https://community.scope.org.uk/discussion/71778/enhanced-disability-premium#latest

    The answer will be the same regardless of how many times you ask it. We can't tell you why your payments were stopped and the only ones that can tell you is DWP. You have no other option but to ring them on Monday morning when they open again at 8am. The number to ring, as advised on the other thread is 0800 169 031.

    Coming back to your question.  In another thread you mention the Enhanced disability premium but now you mention the SDP.

    In previous threads over the past few months you've asked about claiming benefits and you also mention you had to stop working, so i'm just a little confused.

    My question is, did all of your ESA stop or just part of it?

    Hello again @marcushodgkiss93. I've just commented on your other thread before I noticed this one. 

    It sounds as though ESA called you to say they've stopped your ESA while they reassess any underpayment/arrears they owe you. Is that correct? 

    I hope you get to the bottom of this soon.
