zero points on PIP assessment
I suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia and 6 weeks ago I had a PIP assessment. The assessor appeared to be unprepared as my wife had to help her spell and pronounce my condition. Presently I am going through a 'good' period and obviously I was assessed under that criteria. I was awarded ZERO points even though we went to pains to point out that on my bad days, which are quite regular, I am totally incapacitated and could not even attempt the scenarios in her questions. She also refused further information that I hadn't previously provided! It wasn't as though I was looking for the full benefit award, I was receiving the lower amount of mobility payment in DLA and had been receiving that payment since 2006. I've challenged her assessment but don't hold out much hope.
