It is not the group that she is in that is relevant but the type of ESA she is receiving.

If she only receives Contribution Based ESA then her savings will not effect her ESA payments.

If she is receiving Income Related ESA in part or in whole then any ISA will be treated as savings. See

Asset rule for ESA(IR)
