    No it wont as the benefits dont overlap and either can be claimed without the other or indeed both together.

    Hi @Sharlon22 welcome to the community!

    Hi,

    Have you had a face to face assessment for the PIP claim? Most people have these, as it's rare to have a paper based assessment.

    Are you due an ESA payment or have you recently started a claim for this too? If you've already claimed, are you in a group?

    Have you rang them to ask why you haven't received payment? This will be the only way you'll know why. Unless you've received another ESA50 form recently and haven't returned it then this could be a reason why you haven't received payment.
