PIP Review eek!

Post by lubellasquee » Tue Aug 28, 2018 5:40 pm

So I have received the dreaded brown envelope because it’s review time, I’ve had no change in my condition since my award and after being refused PIP and having to fight tooth and nail for it before I’m terrified of it happening again!
I’m worried that I’ll have to go through the appeals process or another face to face! I don’t think I can face this again

Unfortunately I believe the default is to refuse or reduce for everyone.

Seek help with completing the form and make a copy of your completed form before you send it off. That way you can refer to it during any interview. Be brutally honest about your struggles and the things you need help with.

The wait for news will likely be long and tortuous so look for support and try hard not to let it get to you. Yes it is **** but you are not a scrounger and are worthy of assistance.

Thanks, I’m going to see if I can get some help with the form because I can’t make heads nor tails of it.
