  1. Thanks for the info, the total amount involved will definitely be under 6K. Nice to know that my ESA won't be affected.
  2. Hi all, I'm currently receiving income based ESA. Today I've received a letter from my employers stating that due to my ill health my terminated (this is not unexpected and in fact is a bit of a relief...) and that I will shortly receive a months wages in lieu of notice plus some accrued holiday pay.

  5. Hi all, Following advice I found on this forum I recently sent a Notice of Appropriation letter to First Direct to make sure they don't take my benefits to pay bank charges. To put all this in context, this is an account I've had for about 18 years. I haven't had an overdraft facility or credit card for most of that time because I don't want or need either of them.
