Condition worsened but I lost PIP
Just wondering if anyone can offer any advice. I claimed PIP for approximately 18months and my health deteriorated. On a review form I explained how my health had worsened. I was sent for another assessment and the assessor said I was entitled to any payment at all. So my payments were stopped. I appealed and sent a letter from my GP but lost the appeal. I, again, appealed and it was sent to court, to appeal there. I sent my appeal to them and received a letter from them explaining they were looking in to it on 11th April. I have not heard from them since. I heard from PIP in the form of around 120 page evidence to why they refused me. I rang court today and they said it could be up to 37 weeks wait for a date in court. Is this right? Also will they back date my PIP to February when they stopped it? Thank you for your help, I’m at my whits end.
