Will the new change to PIP affect me?

I suffer from 'Sero Positive Rhuematoid Arthritis', Depression, Tinnitus and a damaged Thyroid gland.
I am in receipt of low-middle PIP for daily living and mobility and was wondering how the new change to long term sickness benefit (PIP) would affect myself and others?

    Hello @DTWALL,

    You've got me a little confused here I must admit. There aren't any middle rates of PIP so do you mean DLA and are you moving from DLA to PIP?

    ESA would be the main sickness benefit available now whereas DLA and PIP help with some of the extra costs associated with disability.

    I hope I can help you work this out.

    Best wishes
