    Hi @stever,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you on board.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having some problems with PIP. We have lots of useful information about Personal Independence Payments on our website, and here on the community we have a Talk about PIP/DLA category, which may be of interest.

    We also have an Ask a Benefits Advisor category, should you need further help and advice.

    I hope this helps. If you have any questions, then please do get in touch.
