Hi, both my friend & I switched from incapacity to Esa her before me we are both in the support group the only difference is she gets IR & when I swapped a couple of years ago & for some reason I'm not sure of I'm in the CB so when we were chatting just before Xmas she asked me to ring the benefits office as she couldn't understand why I get enhanced rate of PIP for both care & mobility due to my cyclical vomiting syndrome fibromyalgia & MS I wasn't getting IR so I rang the benefits office today Jan 4th & they are sending me a form to fill in but unfortunately last year my auntie passed away & in about September last year 2017 she left both £5.000 each, so my question is is after all that is will this have any effect on me swapping from CB to I. Many thanks thanks for listening & kind regards & hope this year is kind to everyone
