My PIP was reduced last year
I had a pip review a asessment July last year, was changed to pip from ESA in 2015 for multiple health problems including sight loss in one eye. The first pip assessment was with a doctor the second was at my home ( not requested ) where I wasn' allowed to answer her questions properly, she only did the grip test, went out came back and did a cursory eye test.I then received a notification to say my pip was being cut they had taken away my mobility allowance for stress and anxiety when travelling (I hardly go anywhere) it said I was perfectly capable of driving on my own and nothing bad was going to happen! Also that she had observed me walking normally ( I never left the chair)! I was very upset at the lies told by the assessor but didn't appeal for fear of them removing my pip altogether.
