My mother in law may lose her PIP

I’m hoping for some advice please for my in laws.

my father in law receives Income Related and Contribution based ESA due to depression and anxiety. My mother in law has numerous physical health problems and receive high level PIP, including mobility component.

My father in law has recently inherited £11,800 and is due to collect a lump sum (£16,000) and weekly works pension (£85 p/wk).

A citizens advice worker kindly provided advice to them today but one major concern he raised was that my mother in law will lose her PIP, or at least the living component element.

How is that possible please if it’s not a means tested benefit? As you can imagine, both are very scared of the outcome.

I would be truly grateful for any advice please.
