Will ESA and PIP stop if I'm pregnant and claim child benefit?

Hey just wondering if you are on ESA and PIP will this stop if you become pregnant and need to claim child benefit?

    Hi @Mazzz79 and welcome to the community!
    Nope, Child Benefit doesn't affect ESA or PIP. :smile: It's ignored for income-related benefits. I imagine you'll need to inform ESA of the pregnancy, but I've been unable to find a consensus online. It might be worth getting advice from a local advice agency, calling ESA directly or our helpline on 0808 800 3333.
