    Hi @dannyboy1990, and welcome!

    Sorry to hear this- I'm not sure of the answer myself! ESA and PIP are usually considered two separate benefits so it may be that your PIP isn't affected, but it might be a good idea to be prepared for this just in case. What was the appointment you missed and did you have a good reason for doing so? Our community members may be able to advise you further with this.

    Hi dannyboy and welcome

    ESA and PIP are separate. if your ESA is stopped you will continue to receive PIP as long as you meet the criteria
