    Hi Tracey

    Is this PIP or ESA ?

    As CR says, it's possible it's two separate assessments, one for PIP and one for ESA (the work capability assessment, which can also happen in UC).

    I would ring and check, just in case - if it is the same assessment company, then it is likely to be the same benefit, and no, it is not normal to have two assessments. They do make mistakes, so I would ring to find out.

    If they say that you do need to attend on 17th January for the same benefit then ask why. I would advise that you go (because otherwise benefit can stop) but it might be worth making a complaint if they really are insisting you go twice!
