TOPIC: Don' know if i should claim PIP.

Don' know if i should claim PIP. 5 months 1 week ago #171109

Hi,i've been on ESA for a number of years and am currently in the support group category,i got the forms to apply for PIP many months ago but never filled them in cause of the horror stories you hear about atos,my main concern was failing to get pip,being removed from esa and being found fit for work.

I wanted to try for pip because I have mobility issues caused by a large area of excema on the base of one foot causing dfifficulty putting my foot flat on the ground along with breathlessness caused by Asthma.

I have other problems but these do not interfere with getting about,has anyone else tried for mobility on the grounds of having Excema on the base of the foot.

We haven't seen an adverse Decision for PIP have an effect on an ESA claim, as to your qualifying for PIP, have a look at the PIP Claim guide.
