I attempted to claim pip last October I am now at the stage of going to a tribunal because they have awarded me 0 points. I have been diagnosed by my Dr with Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Polymyalgia, Furring of arteries to my heart, High Cholesterol and Mixed Anxiety and Depression. I do not understand how I have been declared as not needing any help and basically having nothing wrong with me, anyone else had the same results.

    Hi @babs58, welcome! 

    Sorry to hear you were awarded 0 points, the PIP process can be so frustrating. You're definitely not alone, but people often see better results at tribunal, so I'll keep everything crossed that you get a better result soon. Have you got a date for your tribunal yet or are you still waiting?

    I'll pop your post over to our PIP section in case you have any questions. We've got lots of lovely members so I'm sure they'd be happy to share their experiences with you :)
