    Hi @january09 and a warm welcome to the community!

    Your PIP won't be affected due to it not being means tested. ESA will depend if you are on new style ESA, contribution-based or income-related. Also, is it a joint claim?

    You are what’s known as a mixed age couple and the rules around this are opaque and complex. You need advice as soon as possible. Do not claim anything until you have had that advice.

    Welcome @january09 i just wanted to welcome you to the community. I wont add any more advice as the above posts have answered your question perfectly. I’d be just echoing the same points.
