PIP Aghhhh - Carers UK Forum

PIP Aghhhh

All about money
So wife moving from DLA to Pip, terminal heart condition,30/60% chance of surviving 2 years,two comas ,two heart attacks twice I've been told she won't survive the night but she is well enough to work and not get pip. WTF!!
Mental problems for her,partly historical,partly health problems partly the pip process.
The pip lady when she explained her mental health problems said,lost me there love, haven't a clue what you are on about.
Broken system.
Hi Julian.

So ... your caree has joined the legions of those having been rejected for PIP ... after being on DLA.

Okay ... PIP appeals ... a deluge of information on the Internet ... two of the better links out there :

https://www.advicenow.org.uk/guides/how-win-pip-appeal

https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benef ... -tribunal/

For direct reaction from other carees , the SCOPE online community forums are full of useful advice :

https://community.scope.org.uk/

PIP / DLA have their own section :

https://community.scope.org.uk/categori ... ut-pip-dla

( Added advantage of their own expert advisors participating on the forum ... something that this forum sorely lacks. )
Make sure you appeal or ask for a reconsideration WITHIN THE TIME FRAME GIVEN.

You only have four weeks so call citizens advice office on Monday to ask about a MR. Or visit in person. https://advicelocal.uk

You can contact us about any aspect of the service you’ve received, including:

mistakes that have been made
unreasonable delays
how you’ve been treated
not being kept informed
Sunny,,since May my wife has been trying to get ESA back pay,we are not high priority as we have funds...65 calls many lasting over an hour 40 ring backs promised. 2 received. We have escalated but that is slow as well.
I still nudge my wife every morning just to see she is still with me.She gets weaker and more tired every week.
We want to go to our old haunts in euro land, insurance for her is about £850 a week. Need that ESA back pay.
I think you may get a quicker response if you contact your local M.P.

https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-your-mp/
Not at the moment, because of the pending election.
Have contacted my M.P who happens to be one of the architect's of the system, certain ex chancellor who is leaving parliament. I've contacted him on other matters and to be fair he has been o.k.
M.Ps are still undertaking constituency business evidently.
As your wife has a very poor outlook, please read up about NHS Continuing Healthcare. So many people are unaware of it, so I like to redress the balance a bit. FREE care at home from the NHS for very poorly patients.
