    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling with low income. Your mobility award of PIP doesn't entitle you to the SDP with your ESA unfortunately.  Hopefully your Tribunal hearing date won't be too long.
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.

    Hi @Sam12, when did you put in for your PIP appeal? Has it been through MR and you're waiting for your Tribunal? Is your support worker helping with this?
    Sorry you're struggling so much. :smile:
