In principle yes, it's something to raise while you are on the phone, the only potential problem would be if they do not have any afternoon appointments in the diary that is available at that time, they will be resistant to waiting for a suitable appointment to become available.

Congratulations, if you contact the DWP they should be able to tell you what the award is.

Yes I would ask for the report so you get a better idea of how you qualified.

Don't worry about the reference to JSA on your payment, the ESA payment system is piggy backed on the JSA one, so when there is a ad hoc payment it shows as JSA.

If may be that your PIP award has increased the amount of ESA that you receive and you had a one off payment.
