Hi, I have been fighting P.I.P since July last year. i am profoundly deaf, I have tinnitus, neurological problems, a incurable rare skin disease called PYOPERMA GANGRENOSUM and SUSSAC'S disease. I also suffer with depression. P.I.P have refused my application twice, because I didn't get enough points. they refused me a health assesment. and on Wednesday I went to court. i received a letter on friday from the courts, to say i was entitled to P.I.P, and it was for the enhanced rate. and P.I.P had to back date it to Aug 2016. i Brooke down crying, not because I won, but because I was so tired of fighting. My husband called P.I.P to see what would happen next?. because he has been my carrer since November, and can't get any finacial help. they told him they had recieved the letter on thurs, and that they have the right to challenge the appeal. they said they have 28 days to do so. my heart sank, i couldn't believe P.I.P are going to make me wait another month. I can't believe they have so much power. with debts mounting, and 3 children it's been so hard, i just want to give up.
