    Is it new style ESA? If so that is only contribution based and will not be affected by the PIP.

    if it is contribution based legacy ESA then in some limited circumstances you might become entitled to an income based ESA top up. 

    What ESA are you claiming?

    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hello and welcome. PIP benefits payments are not taken into account when claiming other benefits.
