    Hi freckles and welcome

    If you are getting the enhanced rate of PIP and your condition has not improved there is no reason to think that you won't continue to get it providing that you still meet the criteria.
    ESA is a different benefit to PIP and the two have different criteria, however if you still meet the criteria for SC then you should remain in it.
    When are you due to have your reveiws ?

    Reveiws are carried out 12 months early and the decision made at the reveiw supercedes your old award. So the award accept this time will carry forward to your next reveiw
