I have Crohn's Disease,an Ileostomy Asthma, Arthritis, CKD stage 3, Gout, Peripheral Neuropathy and was on DLA lower rate for care and higher rate for mobility indefinitely, I have since had a reassessment for PIP and have just been told I am not entitled to anything after having a f2f assessment even though my condition as worsened since my DLA was granted in 1998. The lady that interviewed me didn't ask me to do anything and some of the questions she asked me she wrote that I had no trouble doing them even though I have. I am absolutely disgusted with what she wrote on the form I feel like she was interviewing a different person to me.

    Hello @Sued59 and welcome to the community.

    Unfortunately this is common. If you haven't done so ask for a mandatory review, but you are probably going to have to take it to appeal.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hi @Sued59,

    Welcome to Scope's online community!

    I'm sorry to hear about the problems you've been having with PIP. As @Geoark mentioned, you can ask for a mandatory review of the decision. We have more information about this and tribunals on our website here.

    I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions, please do get in touch.
    Liam
