I've had my PIP award (only awarded Feb '16) ended early, by 7 months, by the DWP (daylight robbery). The Decision Maker has simply agree with the HCP's "no points" for every single descriptor. Despite the fact, that the HCP acknowledges I have diagnosed condition which are having a functional impact on daily tasks (her words). The HCP stated things about my mental state which she didn't observe or ask about. She reported "does not ruminate", for example, which is rubbish. I do ruminate, as this is a common feature of my mental health. The HCP from last year made no such absurd statement. The financial cost of the early PIP ending is over £4000. Not to mention the additional stress and having to cope on just £73.10 per week. I want to take legal action against Atos/DWP but don't know where to begin. Atos were also responsible for me losing my Income Support and not getting ESA a few years ago. The HCP subjected me to sexual discrimination by saying my mental health and chronic pain (not being able to do housework) was " a man thing". Shocking but true and the DWP and appeal service don't care.
