The DLA is easy, you will be invited to claim PIP but as claimants are being chosen at random it's impossible to say when it will happen.

If they have said that you are not due for reassessment of your ESA until April next year then I would take this as being the case.

At this time there is nothing more than a scheduled start date for the transfer of ESA(IR) claimants to Universal Credit, as the DWP have missed every UC target so far and many by years, I don't think that this is an issue anyone needs to worry about at the moment.
