    Hi iza, I am looking at doing a pip claim after being in esa support group and getting advice that I was never told that pip maybe an option, and also information regarding my ongoing health assesments re depression and my anxiety disorder.
    I intend on calling scope regarding support for the pip claim, However any advice would be warmly recived.
    And thankyou.

    Hi @adriank
    I think if you will speak directly to @BenefitsTrainingCo is the best option before you move any sudden changes in claiming another benefit than you are on at the moment. 
    Once you are on one with mostly you are happy for you should stay with it. 
    Many people who do new claims are receiving straight away rejection no matter how strong is they medical condition they suffer from and are forced to do mandatory reconsideration and appeal to Tribunals. 
    As long as I consider once you will make new claim you will have new medical assessment and this time you can be scored less than previously so keep this in mind. 

    @BenefitsTrainingCo can you advice @adraink more here please. Thanks
