    Hiya @CockneyRebel I had my pip stopped back in March..the person who done my review put a load of lies in her report..at that time I wasn’t in a very good place so I just left it go..plus I didnt have anyone to help me with it nor did I know what I had to do to appeal it..I was talking to a Friend that told me that I can make a late appeal..so I rang and was told I have until March next year..but I still don’t have anyone to help me appeal..no know what I need to do this..I’m under investigation for ms and have just had a mri scan..and I’ve also been told by my specialist that I need a op on my back..that I’m refusing to have as I have children and can’t be laid up..and what if something was to go wrong..I was wondering if there is anyone that can give me some advice as to who could help me with this..I also suffer from mental health too..thank you for taking the time to read this

    Hi Zowie

    You can make a late appeal but you might be advsed to get help from CAB or similar

    There is a second option in that as you have no award in payment you can make a new claim.

    There is lots of info on this site soplease have a read and come back with any questions
