    Hi @jankel

    It’s great to meet you today!!!

    I’m very very sorry to hear about your letter from “DWP”

    Can you please let me know if I can help/support you with your “pip” decision????

    Hello @jankel, and welcome to the community. I am glad you have found us.
    Admin will probably move your post from 'welcomes' to a PIP forum. PIP/DLA  are issues that crop up pretty much every day here, so there are a lot of resources.
    Please have a look, for the time being, at these two links:
    Talk about PIP/DLA https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/talk-about-pip-dla
    and
    Ask a benefits advisor, https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/ask-a-benefits-advisor
    I don't have specific answers to your questions, but others will be along who do and you will probably find valuable information in the links I've connected you to. And by all means look at the other links lower down the page and have a look around.
    Keep in touch!
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hi @jankel, and welcome! So sorry to hear about your PIP decision. Are you appealing? If so, you may find our guidance on DWP appeals helpful.

    Have you asked DWP for a copy of the assessor's report?

    jankel   I agree with you . it is not just the DLA or PIP money you lose but all the other benefits you lose out on . Life becomes  one big struggle .  Are you going to ask for a reconsideration ?

    Ditto this. I lost my sdp linked through the care. I kept the edp as I believe that's linked to mobility. 
    Both letters arrived at the same time. 
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.
