    Hello Peter @peterjacks01, and a warm welcome to the community. You've found a safe place here, among friends, and we're very glad to have you with us.

    Now, I am not a benefits advisor but we do have them and they will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Can you tell us a little more about yourself and about the problem I presume you're having with PIP? The more you tell us about your situation, the more easily we may find ways to help you;
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    hi thanks for your reply dwp are taking my motobilty car from me on 29th pf this month because my assessment said I wasn't as bad as I say this has happened to me twice now in 3 years after ive been to an appeal I get my car back but as you know it takes at least 6 months to win appeal the funny thing is I can barely walk an rely on my car to get me to hospital appointments which I have 3 a month and living with cancer its hard the funny thing is I tapped the assessment and cant belive the lies they have said tried to tell pip an dwp but its falling on deaf ears and cant afford to buy a car even tho is only going to be for about 6 months

    Hi peter and welcome

    Have you tried getting your MP involved ?

    This is happening to far to many people and there seems to be a link between winning on appeal and then losing again when review comes around

    They really are unfeeling B*******s

    I am sorry  I don't have an answer it is happening to far to many. I get really frustrated that I can do nothing to help.
    Is your MP active or just paying lip service ?

    other than going through the normal MR and appeal routes, keep trying to get your MP to do their job is all I can suggest

    Hi Peter I’m with you my assessor was the same his laptop kept freezing and he didn’t ask me about all the things that I put down on my claim form said I showed no signs of anxiety even though I broke down in tears it took 4 months for a reply from my MR letter to be told that I still won’t get pip and yet again I’ve contacted the dwp regarding my high blood pressure and the fact I’m on 4 tablets a kidney transplant patient and recently had a quadruple heart bypass op was not mentioned on the MR letter either this a very flawed system
