    Hello and welcome, firstly ESA and PIP,are not related benefits, showing the PIP acessor your award letter from ESA May or may not have any bearing on your husbands PIP award. Receiving the letter from DWP  for a review of your PIP award a year before it ends is a common practice and could have been a coinsedence of the timing of receiving the ESA award letter from your appeal.
