Benign Brain Tumour and PIP

midlandsrose Member Posts: 1 Listener
edited January 2018 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I have a benign brain tumour and have been on high rate mobility and middle rate care on an indefinite period. I have been told to apply for pip which I have done but now I am a mess thinking how I will cope without financial support if PIP say no... my application has been forwarded to Capita I know I cant even cope with the face to face as I have depression and anxiety.. I'm scared of being asked to attend a face to face all I hear is the assessors lie anyway... will I get a face to face will I get the PIP........

    Hi @midlandsrose, and welcome to the community!

    I'm so sorry that you're not feeling great about your PIP assessment, the waiting time is often really difficult for people for the exact reasons you've mentioned. Do keep us updated with your progress and we'll assist wherever we can, and we also have plenty of friendly community members who've been through the process themselves and will do their best to help you out.
