    I was on esa support group, today just got my referral back for PIP. Will my ESA still go through even though I'm now on PIP? I'd phone but they're closed over the weekend and I can't seem to find any relevant information online. :(

    Yes it is.

    Having ESA doesn't affect PIP / DLA. They're given for 2 different things.

    Hi there,
    I just came across this and thought it might be useful - http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/personal-independence-payment-effect-on-other-benefits

    If you scroll down there is a table that lists the current benefits and schemes on one side and on the other it provides details about whether you would qualify for PIP (and at what rate) when PIP is in operation.

    Hope this helps.

    :)
