If I get turned down for PIP, could this affect my ESA claim?
Hi . I have ESA with enhanced disability premium, which I won on appeal in a tribunal in 2016.
Last year I was sent another ESA assessment form, which I filled in with a supporting letter from my doctor . I sent it back and explained that I was also waiting for other supporting letters from specialists . My claim was continued as it is , before I sent in my supporting letters from the specialists , as ESA with enhanced disability premium, but I was only given six months.
My question is this : Now I want to claim PIP . But I have heard that PIP is hard to get awarded.
If I get turned down for PIP , could the DWP reduce my amount of ESA, or , even stop my ESA?
As I’ve heard that the DWP is using the PIP claims to assess poeples ESA claims .
