Hi. 
I am on the high rate of PIP for my disabilities. I’ve read about people getting esa as well as PIP, am I entitled to this? It’s all so confusing.

    Hi,

    That will totally depend on your circumstances and with such little amount of information it's impossible to answer your question. I'd advise a visit to your local CAB for a full benefits check.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I realise that but it's impossible to answer your question because claiming ESA depends on many things... for example. Do you currently work? Live with a partner that works? Is your area a full Universal credit area? Have savings/capital? There's so many questions needing answers that a full benefits check is advised.
