    I had the same problem, you are best in ESA Support as this is extra money.

    If you are in ESA only you have to report to the job centre.

    Hope it helps

    Hello Chris, PIP and ESA are both completely different benefits. One doesn't reflect the other. No one can really tell you what group you'll be put it, if any. It will depend on what evidence you provide and the decision makers decision. If you don't get the decision you want then you'll have to consider the MR route. Hopefully it won't come to this and you'll at least stay in thw WRAG group. Good luck.
