Esa increased, will my pip follow?

I was on around £270 fortnightly for esa and £229 a month pip, recently after an assessment I was moved from the work related group to the support for esa and was awarded £190 a week esa, will my pip stay the same until a separate assessment for that or will it automatically increase to tie with my new esa award? Any help is much appreciated

    Hi @H8scammerclaimants
    Pip and ESA are totally different.If you feel your pip award should be increased then you can apply for reassessment under a change of condition.Please bear in mind your award could be downgraded also.

    Hi,

    Great news for the ESA. As PIP and ESA are totally different benefits then your PIP will remain the same until you're re-assessed.
