    It sounds like you were claiming the Severe Disability premium in with your ESA, which is approximately £64 per week. As you no longer claim the daily living part of PIP then you won't be entitled to this. If you disagree with the PIP decision  you have 1 month to request the Mandatory Reconsideration.
