    ESA and PIP are 2 different benefits. For ESA they can re-assess you at anytime. I'm not sure why you were told you wouldn't have anymore reviews for your ESA. The news rules for those in the Support Group were only introduced last year, so everyone will be reviewed at some point.

    If after this next assessment you're placed into the severe conditions group then all further assessments will be turned off BUT only certain people with certain conditions will be placed into this group and it's only for those currently in the Support Group.
