I today received a call from ESA as i was to have assessment tomorrow I was advised that I no longer need to attend assessment tomorrow as my Doctor has sent in more evidence and i will hear in about 2-4 weeks, also today I got a letter form ATOS for assessment for PIP as I advised that my condition has got worse. What i am wondering is that if they have all information to make a decision without assessment for ESA does PIP have same information??

    Put simply, no
    ESA and PIP are different benefits with different criteria and they don't share information at present

    Hi @wattycz1

    CR has hit the nail on the head - it's a pain, but copy the evidence from ESA to PIP if you can get hold of it (not before reading though to make sure it's useful!).

    Best Wishes,
