      Makes me so angry! My mum lost the enhanced part of esa when she applied for pip. How do they expect you to do that! You applied for pip for a bloody reason. Now they want to to go above and beyond what you can do. They like setting people up to fail xx

      Are you sure it wasn't Severe Disability Premium (SDP) she lost and not the Enhanced? Part of the criteria for SDP is any rate Daily Living PIP or Mid/hight rate care DLA. The Enhanced Premium criteria is Income Related Support group ESA.

      Ooo good luck ! My mums decision was made 2 weeks after her assessment and it came through post just under 3weeks..my partner had his f2f2 weeks ago...we had a call monday from someone at pip asking a question and he said he would be making a decision that day. You shouldn't have to wait too long. I know different parts of the country have different waiting times though x
