    Ah ok
    I think you were on IB ( incapacity benefit ) which then changed to ESA
    ( employment and support allowance ) This is normally an open ended benefit but with reviews at intervals, Have you had a letter to attend an assessment ?

    DLA became PIP ( personal independant payment )
    You have recently had an assessment for this and a decision letter which you have requested a Mandatory reconsideration, which you are waiting to hear the result

    Can you confirm whether I have got it right so far ?
