Apologies everyone....looked at @whistles post and then looked at the photos taken on tablet if the application form.Yes indeed Q2 does ask what conditions you have...I have one condition and that’s the only time I mentioned it ,on the form.Yes I think being a new claimant is easier in terms of acceptance because it asks how you your condition affects you.Nor did I have a diary ....Im curious.......is there a huge difference in the amount of money awarded for the disability allowance compared to PiP.I never had dla.....was not in a good place at the time, to make a claim or capable to make a claim.I wonder if not making a dla claim ,despite being ill for several years ,with well documented sections in a mental ward ,under the continual care if the psychiatric services has somehow made the assessors think that I am making light of the seriousness of my conditions.My award letter did say that my difficulties were consistent with the medical evidence available to them ( perhaps psychiatrist has been contacted by DWP too?)Which in turn is making them “accept”, that what little I do say now, (seeing I did not push myself forward for benefit, that I should have had previously) on the application, gets the DWP to seek direct confirmation from the psychiatric services.Orher applicants in the forum seem to be producing screeds of written evidence from various sources and being made to jump through loads of hoops.I just don’t get it?I never put myself forward for PiP either it was the CPN who suggested it and now the psychiatrist has even signed a form for me to get reduced council tax....they are falling over themselves in comparison, to the first psychiatrist I was allocated.
. As an aside I do wonder if they declined me because I am already receiving support so you don't need us.
