PIP and Pension

Hi there,
I'm new here - so apologies if this is originally sent to the wrong person.
I'm a 61 male, and had been in work until 6 years ago. Then my cp 'progressed' (I'm told this is common for people with 'mild' cp). I now have ESA (in the support group)and PIP.
I think that it is very unlikely that I will work again, and I want to find out:
(a) When my Pension will begin?
(b) Will any monies (that I get) be changed by my disability? and what I need to do to to increase the likelihood of my getting a correct amount?
(c) How do the recent changes to Pension (by the Govt) affect people with cp? (can I provide for my children,  and I sometimes doubt that I will live to the 'standard retirement age'?).
Your help would be much appreciated
Bill.

    a) You can check your state pension here

    www.gov.uk/check-state-pension

    b) check with one of the on line benefit calculators ( there is one on this site  somewhere )
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Hi Bill, 

    With regards to your last question, any changes to the State Pension aren't linked to the kind of illness or disability you may have. I hope I have not misinterpreted your question, but please post again if I have!
