    Hi - I also had a similar situation going from DLA to PIP. I would say definitely fight it. Reply to your letter about the decision and explain why you disagree with the decision. ( Like you have just said. Need help cutting up food ) Also state she made an untrue statement ( lie ) and explain what it was and put in your version of the issue. You can go to CAB for advice and help filling out the forms if you need it especially the points section they will review with you. You need to go to CAB first then they will make an appointment for you but remember there is a time limit to ask them to appeal this decision. But, it sounds like you have a good case for appeal.  Wish you luck... go gettum!

    Hi @AgentTech,

    I'm sorry to hear about the problems you've been having with PIP. If you're thinking of asking for a Mandatory Reconsideration then we have lots of information about appealing a DWP benefits decision on our website which might be of interest to you.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions then please do get in touch!
