    Hello @susiesunflower,

    Sorry to hear about your claim for PIP being turned down. When did you claim PIP and how long ago was the decision? Are you going to or have you thought about appealing the decision?

    When you received the decision did anything stand out that you didn't agree with? Did you have a face to face assessment and if so how did that go?

    If you would prefer to talk about this in person, drop me a line.

    Best wishes
