    Hi @gill123,

    Welcome to Scope's online community!

    I found this comment from one of our Helpline advisors on another discussion:

    "Yes, you can claim ESA and PIP (and many people do) - ESA is paid to people who can't work because of their condition or impairment.  PIP is paid to people who have difficulty doing things in their daily lives because of their condition or impairment.  So people who both can't work, and also have difficulty doing daily stuff, can claim both benefits - they are for different things."

    I hope this helps to answer your question. If we can help in any other way, then please do get in touch!
