MY PIP CLAIM .......
Hi, I've been on DLA higher rate both sections for many years. Recently claimed for PIP and have been awarded standard rate in both, well barely awarded at all, all were awarded at 2 ! I have applied for MR, and that has come back as no change, still standard. I will be appealing, how is the best way to appeal? I have severe scoliosis of the spine, 3 nerves trapped one side, 2 the other. Heart attack 2000, major surgery December 2015, bifemerol aortic bypass, have felt really unwell since. Was pending a hospital appointment when claim was going through for umbilical hernia. Have been for appointment, and I have an incisional hernia caused by tissue damaged by the surgeon, inoperable as too dangerous. So I am now severely disabled, can barely walk, have a wheelchair. The assessor basically lied about all my points, I can barely walk 10 metres, let alone attempt 50 metres. Need help dressing, bathing, and can not stand long enough without severe pain to cook. I cannot believe I am having to all but beg for benefit, I am so upset.
