    ESA and PIP are not related and have different criteria so the ESA assessment will not be sent to PIP

    Hi,

    PIP and ESA are different benefits and your ESA won't be sent to PIP. Hopefully you won't be waiting much longer for your Tribunal and the ESA decision will go in your favour.

    Leave it a week and ring ESA to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report.

    Good luck for both.
