Got 0 points on PIP

I have heart disease, thyroid trouble, type 2 diabetes and severe depression and I attended an assessment for PIP and got 0 points. One of my neighbours cheerfully told me him and his wife get the maximum amount plus a mobility vehicle and he said you need to be a great actor and to play the system. I was disgusted, especially when I was on a bus coming home when I saw him sprinting like Mo Farah for 200 yards to catch the bus (with his stick high in the air). Fuming is not the word!!!!

    Hi @cookiemonster welcome to the community, you can appeal the decision from the DWP through an appeal process that starts with Mandatory Reconsideration.

    We have some great videos to look through about this subject.
