    HI,

    If you're refused once the decision is made then yes your PIP will stop, even though your award was extended. This is because any new decision overrules your existing award.

    You'll need to ring ESA not PIP and they will tell you why your ESA is due to decrease in May. As advised, it's very likely due to your PIP being extended even further than it originally was.

    Hi hope you get it sorted with esa I wouldn't say the letter was wrong more based on incorrect info about your PIP extension but yes a call can hopefully sort it for you

    Hi guys! 

    I received my assessment for pip letter.... the lady who did my report put everything down correctly! ... I was in shock as I’ve heard a lot of bad reviews with regards to this!
    she basically gave me 8 points for daily living and 8 for mobility.... 
    would this mean I would get pip or can my decision still be denied. 
    Thank you

    Hi they usually go with the report when making the decision so fingers crossed

    The truth is out of the millions of claims for PIP most people have a fair assessment leading to the correct award, we only tend to read about the unsuccessful claims across the internet.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.
