    Hi,

    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling with low income. Your mobility award of PIP doesn't entitle you to the SDP with your ESA unfortunately.  Hopefully your Tribunal hearing date won't be too long.
    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.

    Hi @Sam12, when did you put in for your PIP appeal? Has it been through MR and you're waiting for your Tribunal? Is your support worker helping with this?
    Sorry you're struggling so much. :smile:
