    You were advised incorrectly. Claiming PIP has nothing to do with ESA. ESA Support Group is an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise.
    The advice you had yesterday on here was correct. At the moment there's huge backlogs and we've been in a pandemic for 2 of those 4 years, for this reason i'm not surprised that you haven't been re-assessed.
    When your time comes for the review you will receive the forms in the post in a white envelope, until such a time all you can do is wait.
    Your thread from yesterday with the same question is here. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/87462/confused-🤔#latest
