7 month trying to sort out pip
ive been trying to sort pip out for my husband since February after he had to apply as DLA was ending. Had an appointment for face to face assessment which he couldn’t attend explained why they accepted the reason and I asked for a home visit, they sent another appointment after numerous visits to citizens advice atos said they wouldn’t do a home visit due to my husbands mental health they said it wasn’t safe for them to come to our home, but it was safe to send him to an unfamiliar environment with added stress, they stopped his DLA in June saying he wasn’t entitled to pip we asked for a mandatory reconsideration which we won, anyway citizens advice finally got them to do a paper assessment, with information from his mental health professionals, I had a phone call on the 6th and 7th August off the atos assessor to ask a few questions and wish me well, so now it’s a case of wait and see, I’ve asked for a copy of the assessment report which DWP has said they’ll send, I was just wondering has anyone else been through this kind of headache trying to apply for pip for a loved one or am I just one of the lucky ones lol seriously though I hope my story isn’t the norm as it’s been horrendous
