sorry apologies if i'm in the wrong section. my partner has severe mental health problems, was recently diagnosed with schizo affective disorder. he has suffered from bad anxiety his whole life too, has attempted suicide on several occasions :( and has extreme ocd which is pretty much taking over his life.

that was just a little back ground info. he has a care-coordinator, several psychiatrists, a nurse and several doctors working closely to monitor him.

anyways he is getting esa (is in the support group) and we have just now sent off for pip.

now the paranoia and anxiousness is driving him crazy so i'm here to do a little research for him to help put his mind at ease.

firstly is there anyone here who gets pip along with esa for mental health problems?

also at what rate and for which compartments do you get it for - mobility or daily living or both?

i understand that it varies from person to person. as i look after my boyfriend will he be entitled to the daily living compartment or will he just get money for the mobility (as he can no longer take the bus)


anything you can tell us to help reassure him will be great.

There is the standard rate and enhanced rate for mobility and daily living. The amount you get paid depends on how many points you score in each section. Take a look at the disabilityrightsuk website as it has a section on how it is scored and the rates you get paid as a result of your score. It's a very helpful website.

Thank you waverunner, I just did an online test now and seems like he'll be eligible for enhanced daily living and standard mobility. So thank you once again, that has really put his mind at rest!!

I can't add anything that wave has already said, I used that website too and answered the questions fully giving examples of why I'm not safe cooking etc...
I just had my face to face assessment, it was fine she just confirmed all of the things I'd written on the form. Don't make you goto an assessment centre if he isn't up to it - I phoned up and they got me a home visit no problem.
It is a long long wait though but your money will be back dated x
Good luck sparkly
