    Hello Vanessa and welcome

    You don't say what if any benefits you claim.
    Put your details into an on line benefit calculator to see what you are able to claim.


    Have self tests for both ESA and PIP which will give you an idea of what you need to qualify for each benefit.

    The criteria for both benefits are both different, even in areas that look the same
    Please ask any questions if we can be of help in any way.


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
