Can anyone please advise me as I am very confused !! I was awarded PIP via a Tribunal hearing until August 2018, I have just received a letter telling me I have a PIP assessment in November 2017, I feel I should not have to face yet another stressful assessment process considering the DWP's HCP's have never been helpful / accurate in their assessments into my health / health condition following a stroke. I would like to know if the DWP, after this new assessment, would be able to stop my claim for PIP even though a Tribunal has already awarded PIP to me until August 2018 ? I know the DWP are spinning these "new assessments" to see if claimants are receiving the right amount of benefit but I only receive the lowest amount of PIP benefit and I know this forthcoming assessment is not about making sure I receive more from them. Finally, can anyone please tell me what would happen if I decided not to attend this assessment ?
