Just like to get a few things off my chest with regards to my P.I.P assessment.
I had a one page letter explaining that my P.I.P. amount was going up, but no details on the assessment.
Five days later I received an official letter to explain the results.
Mobility wise I was given the lower amount.
I had beside me whilst being interviewed my crutches and a walking frame as well as a walking/foot splint.
I was given zero points for planning and reason… this after I virtually begged the DWP for a (which I had) home visit, as I cannot travel to new places without suffering severe trauma.
I also have back problems, and I pointed to where I had the pain in my lower back.
I was asked to stand put my hands behind my back, no problem.
Then put my arms above me, again no problem.
Not a very comprehensive test this?
I cannot remember the actual words but they virtually called me a liar..
But she, the assessor, was very polite, and calm.
This relaxed me.
So I started to have small talk conversation with her.
It was noted that I made eye contact with her, which I did.
Apparently this goes against my comment that I find it hard to mix/be socially interactive with people.
So yesterday I did a Mandatory Reconsideration, but with this I included a very detailed Psychological report from 012.
It explains my ‘severe’ memory problems…and they are severe, (Brain Injury) Anxiety, hostility and several other problems I have!
I just wanted to get a few things off my chest! Thank you
