Hi just got my pip letter rather anxious I have Asperger's syndrome and depression  and anxiety. I only have till the 8th October to reply and send in and I received today . Not happy as only two years since I received the award September 2015 backdated to,  won appeal at court .  I am feeling very nervous about going through process again . The last time the assessor from capita lied constantly  in report and I made a complaint to them about this. I am going to have to contact doctors again for report which will cost along with other reports so money I don't have ! 
Am very anxious

    You can ask DWP for an extension to submission deadline.  Don't let them fob you off.  I told them I had to seek help with completion of form and they gave me two extra weeks.

    Scope, Disability Rights and CAB websites all have guides to applying for PIP.

    @lianne15 If you do ask for more time make sure you ask the name of the advisor you speak to and note the date and time of the call to cover yourself and then write down the new date you're given. Never trust anything they say but if you've got proof you'll be OK..x
