Awarded PIP , now having to under go another ESA assessment.payment
Was awarded PIP , after a home visit . I had already been receiving ESA for 12 months . But have had to fill the form again for ESA , that was 5 months ago . Received enhanced rate of ESA for disability once I got PIP . Surely I should not have to go through the ESA assessment rigmarole again ? The DWP even put on the new award letter confirming the disability payment part , severely disabled . Suppose to be two separate things but surely the worked together to award the extra , so why not when it comes to a new ESA assessment ?
