    Hi @ronald, and welcome to the community!

    So sorry to hear this. When did you receive your PIP decision, and have you begun the appeals process? Take a look at our advice on DWP appeals, and do come back to us with any questions.

    Hi ronald and welcome

    When did you receive your decision ?
    It is possible to make a late appeal with good cause
    How long is your current award for ?
    Normally if you have an award in payment then you can apply for a change in circumstance if you have a new or wortened condition

    You can apply to your local council for a Blue Badge under certain circumstances, who may assess you
