Epilepsy & Benefits
my partner was assessed last year for pip was given the enhanced rate of daily living for his epilepsy, depression and anxiety. He recently had another assessment and was given 0 points told he was fit for work and basically told to get on with it. Nothing has changed since his last assessment so how can it have changed so dramatically in the space of 10 months.
