    Hi @jennyjlo, if you're still receiving ESA alongside your UC, it'll be because part of your ESA is contribution-based. This will be deducted £ for £ out of your Universal Credit, but you should also have LCW or LCWRA (depending on whether you were previously in Support Group or WRAG on ESA). Your PIP won't make any difference to your Universal Credit or ESA claim and will be paid to you separately. I hope that helps, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
