    There's no new rules. Everything you've read is what "may" happen. Nothing is set in stone until the changes happen and new regulations are put in place. Further more, if he's only claiming PIP then this isn't about working. Many people claim PIP and work.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    As Poppy mentioned above, nothing has been confirmed yet. The changes proposed may not ever come into policy, but we'll keep everyone informed as the information comes through. We will know a bit more about the government's plans after the Autumn Statement on Wednesday 22nd. 

    Easier said than done, but please try not to worry too much at this stage. I hope you and your husband are doing okay :)

    It's a really tough time and you're not alone in feeling worried. We don't know for certain what the proposals are yet, but will know more about it after tomorrow's Autumn Statement. We'll keep everyone posted and be here to offer support :)
