I've read some of the problems people are and have been having with the DWP when it comes to this PIP change from DLA, I am going through similar at the moment and am awaiting the first Mandatory Review decision. My DLA has been stopped completely and the local Job Centre have sent me a letter telling me that my benefit has been cut by over £120.00 per fortnight. I called DWP to ask about this letter as there is no reason on it and things don't make sense on it, they have told me it is because I am getting PIP which I am not which proves that the DWP system is not run on one system but several different systems otherwise my local Job Centre would know that I am awaiting a decision on a Mandatory Review. So this is also the trick of changing from DLA to PIP, once people get the PIP they are entitled to after a long and hard struggle, either their JSA or ESA will be cut to reduce the amount they have coming in. DISABILLITY DESCRIMINATION IS SUPPOSED TO BE ILLEGAL IN THE UK BUT THE DWP ARE THE WORST FOR IT or is this yet another Law the DWP can overlook and beleive does not apply to them because they are a Government Department?
