As long as your wife is still getting the care component of PIP, at any rate, her ESA should not be affected.
Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Awwww hope you hear soon David, as you have probably read my hubby didn't get the news he wanted, we havnt received anything in writing yet, as was told over the phone. We are upset as my hubby is like your wife and in really poor health. We are now having to go and look at getting a cheap runaround as the car will have to go back. Its so unfair. Until the report comes we cant really decide yet what to do, but we are really steering towards the decision of just accepting it as I don't really think my hubby or myself to be honest, be able to take any more stress that all this causes.I really feel for you both and all the other genuine people out there that are being treated so unfairly, I hope you hear soon and it is positive news.
