    PIP is not about your ability to work. People claim PIP and work. Neither is it about a diagnosis.

    Have you ever challenged the decision? If not is there any reason why? To constantly reapply using the same evidence you previously used is likely to see more refusals.

    My advice is to challenge the decision by first requesting the Mandatory Reconsideration and then Tribunal if needed.

    When exactly was the last decision made? If it was within the last 13 months then you still have time to request the MR. If outside the 1 month then you will need to tell them why you didn’t request it within the first month. If they refuse you just proceed to Tribunal. 

    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.
