My lifetime DLA award was taken from me last June, and I've finally heard back from my appeal for PIP... And they've just handed me back to the DWP!
My first tribunal was supposed to happen late last year, but the DWP lied to them and said that I'd indicated a willingness to attend an assessment (I asked the tribunal to challenge them to provide nonexistent proof), so that appeal was ended and I had to wait until the assessment date had passed before I could start another. Every time I've written a letter I've made it very clear that I'm unable to cope with the stress of an assessment, and since I formerly had a DLA lifetime award could they please do a paper-based review instead. I'm still waiting.
I've scraped by without the money, but it's the principle of removing a lifetime award that upsets me. The best of luck to everyone else who isn't up to facing these loaded assessments.
