My name is Julie, and I am new. I am so glad you all let me join Scope. I shall probably be needing some advice over claiming PIP. I applied last year and got turned down, which I got told I probably would. My health has worsened now, so I am going to try again and claim. 

I look forward to reading posts and finding out info I need. 👋

    Was there any reason why you didn't challenge that decision? Reapplying using the same evidence you previously used could see another refusal. 
    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.

    I never challenged my first refusal od PIP because mentally, I never had the strength. I just needed to let go. 
    My physical condition has worsened now, and when I feel strong and able to, I shall reapply.
