    Hi peter and welcome

    What is your retirement date ?

    Fill in ESA form as best you can, assesssments are taking some time to come through. When you do get a date you should then ask for it to be recorded. This could have the effect of delaying until after retirement.

    Can you clarify where you are with PIP ?
    This again is relevant to retirement

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
