Lifetime award of DLA stopped and refused PIP
Hello. I am new to this community.I could do with some advice please. My son who is 28 yrs old has Aspergers Syndrome and Dyspraxia. Since the age of around 9 yrs he has claimed DLA. This was a lifetime award. However due to the new government rules he has to be assessed to claim PIP. We went to an assessment. The decision came back that he doesn't meet the criteria any more to qualify for PIP. This was the end of last year. I have been very busy lately and so have missed the appeal deadline. I went to my doctors thinking that maybe he needed reassessing as an adult. The doctor said that as he had a diagnosis that should be sufficient. He advised me to go to Social Services. They are telling me to go see my GP. I am at a point now where i don't know what to do. If anyone can give me any advice i would be very grateful. Thank you guys.x
