Hello Uncle M, congrats on your support group award. :) I hope you manage to find the strength to complete the PIP form. Don't know if this helps but I found PIP form a lot easier to fill in than the ESA form. I agree with your comment whole heartedly about the help from the mods, and other members also. Like yourself I truly believe the help I received saved my life, and went beyond the call of duty. Not only was I offered support of a technical nature, ie form filling, but also emotional support which enabled me to see the process through from beginning to end. Mods have recently awarded me my little red heart for getting a good ESA result, but I think they deserve a gold medal and so much more for the help they provide. Good luck with the PIP application, will be keeping my fingers crossed for you PP :)

I know ESA and PIP are two different benefits but I would be very grateful if you could give me some advice. I am due to send back my pip2 form soon and was and was going to include a copy of my ESA85A stating I am in the support group under reg35, do you think this would be useful extra evidence for my PIP claim.

The report will only be of use if you can somehow link it to the PIP descriptors.
