does any one know if because I've been on ESA and PIP for a long time will it effect my State Pension?

    Hi @Margaretanne56 - & welcome to the community. Your PIP will continue past State Pension age, so long as you have a current award. ESA is for those under State Pension age, so will end then. You will get a letter inviting you to apply for a State Pension some months previous to the date when you would be of State Pension age. I hope that answers your query. :)
