    Hi John. It would take do any harm. But they don't always ask the same questions. But it can't do any harm. Good luck.

    No ESA and PIP and 2 completely different benefits, they have completely different criteria. They'll know he's recieving PIP anyway. You can use the same evidence you used for PIP, just make sure you take all evidence with you if you haven't already sent it as mostly they don't contact any medical professional for any evidence. Remember during the assessment he'll be assessed whether or not he's able to any type of work.

    Hi john I would not take it cause they loo at everything even if u have your phone out and then they say u can move your hands and look in your phone so u can use a computer I work for ESA . They look if u can sit straight if u move if u can sit still how many times u move your arms or legs how fast u walk and if u take that other form and see something on there that they have give u points on they will contact them and they will call u in again but I would mention it and just say u forgot it , xx
