    Hi,

    When was the decision made on your PIP? did you take it to Tribunal? Just because your condition has got worse it still doesn't mean you'll be successful, especially if you've only recently been refused. Did you have help with your claim? I would advise you to contact welfare rights or another local disability advice centre near you who can advise you further.

    Working disability? Do you mean your ESA has stopped and if so were you found fit for work after a face 2 face assessment?

    Hi @karenlow,

    Welcome to the community! :)

    I'm sorry to hear about the problems you've been having with PIP. As @poppy123456 asks, did you consider appealing the DWP's decision? You normally have a month from the date of your decision to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration, and for tribunals, you must ask for a hearing no more than a month after your MR decision notice.

    You can re-apply for PIP at any time. Our benefits advisors posted this on another discussion which I hope you might find useful: 
    "You do not need to wait 12 months to reclaim PIP. However, if there is a short time between applications and there is no noticeable change in needs detailed on the new PIP application form, PIP may use the same medical information when first refusing your claim.  I would however not be put off by this, and I would keep in mind the rules of PIP when completing the new application."  

    Best of luck with the new claim if you decide to reapply, and if you have any further questions, then please do get in touch!  

    Liam
