hi all my husband had a first pip assessment which the nurse lied about everything and he never got his untiltilment so we wrote to the ICE and informed them about the lies the nurse said for e.g. nurse said examination done but i was witness and no exam was not done, so now we have another fresh assessment with the thing was his first assessment was done at there office thing and when we got the descion back we asked for mandotary reconsideration they told us they believed the assessor was correct in not awarding anything so we wrote in for appeals but in the mean time we wrote to atos about how the first assessment was totally wrong because she said she done a examination on him but i was in the room and no examination was not done ,so we complained to atos and the independent case examiner about the first assessement which was totally false my husband is under the mental health services for his long term illness stress etc so was wondering if this was normal procedure if they found the assessors to have lied about first assessment
the report then was looked at by cmsa they wrote back saying too many inconsisitneces with the nurses report and they believed the assessor did not look at my husbands doctors specialist reports total  lies,
now atos had been told by dwp to make a new fresh assessment which they had made a home visit appointment for 4th january 2017 the appointment was from 9am to 11am but at 10:56 they rang up to cancel no excuses we rang to ask why?
to be told basically nothing, they then arranged a second appointment for 31 january again they rang to cancel appointment no excuses has to why?
rang to be told there is a board meeting on friday and my husbands case was involved in that meeting,
what the hell is going on i need counselling after this.
so we have been told that dwp asked for extension to appeals so they allowed them until the 4th feb 2017 and what happens now I'm not knowing getting rather peed off

    Sorry to hear all this @jjdd70 (nearly all assessors lie - mine did!).  You might want to copy what you've said above into the 'Ask a benefit advisor' category - there are benefits experts on there.

    It's awful how these familiar stories appear to be so frequently experienced. I hope things improve

    hi all update ok so now waiting for appeals date just got the big bino book all  the paper work 
    ok so on 1 of the pages it says IF THE TRIBUNAL DECIDE TO AWARD BENEFIT THE EARLIAST DATE FOR ANY PIP AWARD IS 19/10/2016
    also says
    POINTS OF DISPUTE
    IN HIS APPEAL MY HUSBAND STATES HE WAS ON DLA INDEFIINATE 
    ANY PREVIUOS ENTITLTMENT TO DLA HAS NO IMPACT ON THE PERSONAL INDEPENCE PAYMENT DETERNIMATION THIS IS BECUASE THE BENEFITS USE DIFFRENT ENTILEMENT CONDITIONS
    then it says 
    CONCLUSION
    I OPPOSE THIS APPEAL AND ASK THE TRIBUNAL TO DISMISS THE APPEAL AND CONFIRM THE SECRETARY OF STATES DESCISION
    I'm guessing this is something quite normal at the moment to be receiving from pip
