    I sent in a letter to pip asking then to look at my claim again and I have just received a reply saying I have been turned down . They have turned me down on none of the evidence I gave them only what they think. As for ESA I am still having to send in doctors notes I had a reminder from them the other day saying my note runs out on November 30th I claimed this benefit in June.I am getting £73.10 per week .

    Hi @LadyRichmond,

    Welcome to the community. Lots of people here have experiences going through the ESA and PIP process - so I hope we can help you.

    Let us know if there are specific things you're having problems with.

    MY employer has finished me on the grounds of ill health because I cannot work so I cannot see what the hold up is.

    Hi @LadyRichmond

    Thanks, sorry but do they know that you are no longer working due to ill health so why do they need sick notes ???
     
    I have got some info on esa to look at later do you want me to send you link once I have got my head around it ???

    I have just got pip info so I need to brush up on that one before I forward it to you as I'm still on dla & I'm "chomping at the bit" for my "battle"   

    Many thanks.
