    Mentioning someone in a discussion (do so by putting an @ before the user name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.

    If my son would not receive PIP and is going to college in September to do a supported introduction to employment course would he be able to apply for ESA or is there any other benefits that he could apply for.  He has lost about £500 a month since his pip was been denied twice now, even though when he got DLA for life, which we we told when he got his DLA decision.

    he was told that he had to change from DLA to PIP as he is turning 17 at the end of this month, which we were not told about until we got the letter telling us about it in March this year.  We were told that he would receive his DLA money until the PIP application was done and we had received his award letter. Because it was denied we have had that money stopped even though it was going through an appeal process, so he was now lost his money and we have lost the money for his careers allowance also, even though we still have to do the same things for him that we have always had to do for him, and even though it wasn’t that much money, the couple of hundred pounds a month that we relied on to live.

    any help on this subjects would be gratefully received as I am so stressed out with this whole decision making debacle

      Hi Charlottecardwell
      This would depend on the rest of your circumstances. Have you ever worked? Based on your national insurance contributions for last 2 years you could be entitled to New Style ESA.
      If you haven't and don't have enough NI contributions, Universal Credit may be an option but it depends on your other household circumstances such as whether you have a partner that works and any other savings and income you have.
