Lost benefits without warning
Hello i was wondering if i could get some help my husband suffers from schizophrenia and has done for the passed 12 years. He has had his PIP taken from him which we are waiting on a tribunal hearing, but we have have just signed in to our Universal Credit website to find out that my husbands Limited capability for work and work-related activity money has been taken from him. We have had no acknowledgement or warning this was going to happen and i have no clue what to do. Since all this has happened with Pip and now this my depression and anxiety has taken a hold on me and try to carer for my husband is starting to get a little hard. Im finding it very hard to get help from anyone for just the smallest thing like evidence to send to the tribunal from his psychiatrist. So ive come here to ask if anyone can help regarding the Universal credit or even the pip because im losing the will to fight now
Thankyou in advance
