I claim ESA (WRA) and have been told to claim PIP too. Could be ESA be reconsidered if I failed PIP?
Hello, i currently claim ESA (WRA group) i had to go to court to in 2018 and was told no reassessment for at least 24 months. Since then my health has gone down hill, i have depression (also been told i could have BPD, cervical spine degeneration, pain syndrome, weakness on right hand side to mention a few. I have been told that i can and should be claiming for PIP. I've been told that yes i can claim PIP and ESA together but have now been told that if i were to fail PIP at the initial application (which apparently always happens) then my ESA would be reconsidered as well and probably stopped, even though they are different places. I believe i should be in the ESA support group now as well but i honestly am too worried to do the application in case my benefit gets stopped! Please could someone clarify what is right and what i am actually allowed to do as i am confused.
