    Don't think it will, pip is paid to some people who work so its a different criteria, don't take my word for it though as iv never claimed it, glad you got your pip sorted, that was fast

    Hi Ross

    Your PIP won't give you an automatic award for ESA.

    However, as you have been assessed as have difficulties those same difficulties may apply to the ESA descriptors. If that was the case then your chances would improve considerably as you would have gold plated evidence of an assessment carried out by a DWP service provider.

    Hi Ross

    Do you mind me asking what your condition is and why they said you weren't eligible for pip.

      Hi Abigail, it all depends not just on your illness but on the effect it has and is provable on your day to day life, what were the health issues you claimed for.

      Also did you send in plenty of medical evidence to back it up.

      Well here goes...

      I suffer really bad with aniexty.

      I won't leave the house alone, even with somebody is a real struggle, I rarely go out.

      I have to have somebody pick up my medication.

      I will not use the shower, taps, iron, hair dryer other things Incase something bad happens

      I will also not use my cooker Incase I leave it on or pass out

      (Passing out is my massive phobia)

      I have to have my shopping delivered even then I won't answer my door it will have to be my mum or daughters dad😫 I didn't really have much medical evidence other than showing my medication to the asseser.

      I was really hoping I would get the claim so I can get a carer as I just can't live like this on my own with out the support from family. Sorry for the long post x

      Hey Abigail

      I also suffer with anxiety and people don't realise that it's as debilitating and a real struggle to physically do most things in life. I also suffer with depression as well so I'm between a rock and a hard place. I just wish they realise not all disabilities can be seen.

      Trust me when I say talk about your conditions, I have on this site and it's helped me a lot.

      Also have a look on PIP scoring site to give you an indication how they will score you.

      Good luck Neil xx
