    Hi Nicole1948,

    Welcome to the community! It's great to have you here :)

    You say that you have big issues with PIP forms, is there anything I can help with? There's lots of us on this community who have experience with the PIP forms and there are still some advice services which can help with filling them in. There are also lots of resources on the internet which can help guide you along.

    Let me know what difficulties you're having with the PIP forms and I'll see if I can help or find you some help.

    Best wishes

    Hi Nicole,

    What a nightmare for you! I think this is the first time I've heard of one of these forms being sent to the wrong address. Well done to you for getting it filled in and sent back. Have they sent you confirmation that they've received your form yet? If you provided them with a mobile number they will text you with updates to let you know how the claim is progressing. It should then save you having to make further calls to find out how things are going.

    Sorry to hear about your son and I understand your need to remain anonymous so don't worry. You really have been through a lot haven't you. I'm glad you found our community though and I hope you find it an enjoyable experience and meet lots of new people. It helps to share life's woes and together we can get through anything.

    Let us know how you get on with your PIP and get in touch anytime.

    Very best wishes
