    That's great news Kim. No, your SDP will not be affected because it's awarded on either rate of Daily Living PIP. As for the car tax then you'll need to speak to DVLA for that, keep ringing you'll get through eventually.

      No problem. Unfortunately it won't help, sorry. ESA and PIP are 2 completely different benefits. People claim PIP and work. ESA is for those with a limited capability for work.

    May I ask if you know how long did it take for you to receive your letter? I have been told my letter was posted on 27th April. Thank you

      It can take 7-10 working days to receive a letter from DWP. This is because all mall going out from them also has to go through a mail sorting process and all post is always 2nd class. As it was only posted Friday then it could be at least the end of the week, possibly longer.
