Hi, my name is Izzy49! PIP reform

Hi I have just joined the community today, and have become very polictically minded, and been emailing the government about why rush the ESA migration, and also of course about the proposed changes to PIP. I even gave them a summary of my costs so that they can see that even the present amount of PIP doesn't cover all my expenses. How are you feeling about PIP and the proposed changes? I have also copied in my email to Scope. I also completed the Green Paper to view my opinions about PIP.

    Heya @Izzy49 and welcome to the community.

    Thank you for giving your opinions to the green paper, we think it's super important that as many people as possible do that. We have a few pinned posts relating to the proposed PIP changes on the community. 😊

    I have completed The Green Paper twice. I think I'll even try a third time if I get the energy. I emailed the DWP and gave them a table of my monthly costs, which exceeds £737. I will let you know if they respond in anyway.
