Hi everyone,

I recently had a Work Capability Assessment as I am on ESA. She asked me if I was also on PIP, I said no I wasnt. She suggested I think about claiming for PIP too. Does anyone on here claim both? What should I consider or think about before claiming PIP?

She was a really nice woman, I was lucky.

to get esa support group you have to prove limited capability for work, pip it's extra costs of disability, the criteria are slightly diffferent though they look at your esa claim when you apply for pip
