Support a petition to stop the merger of some disability benefits
Don't merge the assessments
for PIP and ESA
Here is a link to a petition against the planned merging of assessments for Employment Support Allowance (ESA) and Personal Independence Payments (PIP), that some of you affected by, or who have relatives who are affected by these benefits, may wish to sign.
In a speech on 5/3/19, Work & Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd announced plans to merge assessments for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Employment & Support Allowance (ESA) from 2021. Seeing as PIP & ESA are different benefits with different purposes, we feel this would be extremely dangerous.
