Yes, it is normal to get a P45. Keep it in case you need it for tax purposes, and do make sure that your ESA is now being paid.

You shouldn't need your P45 in order to get your ESA. The DWP will have its own copy on its computer system.

As for checking, I've read too many accounts on here about people not getting their ESA not to think it's worth checking. See if the money has come into your bank account.

Administrative slips happen in every system, but it can take time to sort out if someone's entered the wrong data on the computer, so if your money doesn't come through, chase it.
