Standard living rate PIP and Child tax credit

wasiflmc Member Posts: 18 Listener
I want to know that I recently awarded Standard rate of living component of PIP and I am getting child tax credits for my two kids even before I awarded PIP . My question is that, am I suppose to get more amount of Child tax credit due to my PIP award disability? Or it will remain same as I used to get before . 
Some people saying that if I tell the child tax credit office about my disability PIP award they will increase my child tax credit payments. Please let me know if it is true .
